  1. Are you suggesting that REO departments lift their pinkies to help borrowers? How could you? What does doing better for borrowers have to do with REOs? Did I hear you right???


    • Honestly, it was a pleasant surprise to see such a bill that pushes back against abusing homeowners when they stand to lose the most.

  2. Long overdue indeed, millions of dollars, probably more like billions of dollars, of homeowner equity was wiped out in the melt down in 2007 and onward, due to careless off loading of foreclosed homes, investors benefited big time. Very sad thing that happened then, can’t fix it now, but going forward this would be a wonderful reform and if passed by California it would be great if it set consumer protection precedent and other state’s followed with similar bills.
