Columbus Mayor at "Foreclosure Forum"

by Maureen McCabe on November 25, 2007

From WOSU Radio Newsroom – 820 AM, Mayor Michael Coleman of Columbus is attending a “Foreclosure Forum” in Detroit Michigan… this week.

The Detroit Mayor says the “Foreclosure Forum” is not about legislation.

The WOSU article says:

“One consumer group says cities can’t afford to wait for action in Washington or at the state level. Tuesday’s meeting will be closed to the news media, but the mayors plan to release a report on the economic ripple effect of foreclosures on major metropolitan areas.”

The Detroit Mayor likened the effect of foreclosure on the local economy to a tsunami
Ohio is among the states with the highest rates of foreclosures in the US. The state of Michigan leads the nation in foreclosures.

In totally unrelated news except it is about foreclosures, is adding RealtyTracs feed of foreclosures to their site, according to the Trulia Blog. is a real estate search site.

Our Real Living HER listings are on including foreclosures listed with the brokerage.  I always wonder if there are listings duplicated on because of the way they take feeds.  I used to read the RealtyTrac updates and quit because of duplication of the same listings.
