Sounds a bit 2008, for sure, but the numbers still have the ability to shock. According to the Center for Responsible Lending in the US, the number of home foreclosures so far in 2009 has just topped 1m. The lobby group even has a handy ticker, so you can watch the tally rise in real time: The current rate of growth is 6,600 homes a day, or one every 13 seconds. But, as 24/7 Wall St points out, weâre only just getting going here. http://247wallst.com/2009/06/01/sta...tm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=rss The CRL reckons foreclosures will hit 2.4m by the end of the year, while by 2012 the ticker figure will have grown to a total of at least 9m. The full bill in terms of house value destruction? $1,900bn, the CRL says. http://ftalphaville.ft.com/blog/2009/06/02/56498/the-us-foreclosure-ticker/ V Recovery ...LOL !
