More Threats of Shadow Inventory

New, 1 comment

Fears of a vast "shadow" horde of real estate have been aired before, and this week's much-reported housing bottom has once again stirred the shadow talk. If and when the housing bottom arrives and we begin to see the light of day again, will properties that have been held off the market until such time suddenly flood our charts, thus tamping down prices again? Perhaps, says Zillow, who found in a survey that almost a third of homeowners would be at least "somewhat likely" to put their homes on the market if they saw "signs" of a recovering market. Rut roh!
