All eyes are on the housing market: When will the bubble burst?

Despite early signs of a slowing market, it remains as hot as ever, with new records set for home-selling speeds and price increases. 

Since federal protections have expired, foreclosure numbers are seeing triple-digit growth.

The Q1 2022 U.S. Foreclosure Market Report reported more than 33,000 foreclosure filings in March, up by 181% from a year ago, and filings could get a lot higher by the end of the year.

If you’re wondering how foreclosure filings and the housing industry will fare over the next twelve months, this program is for you.

Foreclosure and bankruptcy authorities summarize the most significant decisions and developments to date and make their predictions for the remainder of this year.
