Well it seems as though almost no one in Congress is paying attention to the expiration of the Mortgage Debt Forgivenss Act; sadly for many homeowners who are still struggling as it expired on December 31st. If, I repeat, if I were in a situation today that would require me to make a decision bet...
I posted this on July 14th, 2011. Bernanke says home price stabilization necessary to wo buyers In my humble opinion  the problem is with the lending "establishment".

that when things are tough in the real estate business so many Realtors® have a problem following the Code of Ethics. There is so many things going on right now, especilly in REO and Short Sale transactions, that are unethical. No wonder the public doesn't trust the Real Estate Industry and agent...
Real Estate is the highest paying hard work and the lowest paying easy work there is. Keep that in mind as you sit at your desk waiting for the phone to ring.
