    Good Job Scott,

    I’m a little surprised on the final tally of decline by area. I though it would be more, but I don’t think were at the bottom yet. With the Treasury Department running out the money to buy mortgage securities we should see a 1% raise in interest rates in the next 6 months. We’ll see how that impacts the market along with raising foreclosures over the next 6 months. I think you’ll see bank actually finalize the NOD out there and take the property back. It was great working with you.

    Thanks Tom
