Foreclosures are the fastest growing sector of the real estate market. And, RealtyTrac is the #1 source for foreclosure data in the country. Consumers are interested in foreclosure information – an extremely hot topic that everyone is talking about – but you can rest assured that the content we provide is the most trusted, real-time dynamic data available. Enjoy seamless integration with the content we provide, enticing them to stay longer – and come back more often.
“RealtyTrac released its U.S. Foreclosure Market Report™ for Q1 2009, which shows that foreclosure filings — default notices, auction sale notices and bank repossessions — were reported on 803,489 properties in the first quarter, a 9 percent increase from the previous quarter and an increase of nearly 24 percent from Q1 2008. One in every 159 U.S. housing units received a foreclosure filing during the quarter.”
Foreclosure filings were reported on 341,180 properties in March, a 17 percent increase from
the previous month and a 46 percent increase from March 2008. The March and Q1 2009
totals were the highest monthly and quarterly totals since RealtyTrac began issuing its report
in January 2005 despite a decrease in bank repossessions (REOs), which were down 13
percent from the fourth quarter of 2008 and 3 percent from February totals.
“In the month of March we saw a record level of foreclosure activity — the number of
households that received a foreclosure filing was more than 12 percent higher than the next
highest month on record. Since much of this activity was in new foreclosure actions, it
suggests that many lenders and servicers were holding off on executing foreclosures due to
industry moratoria and legislative delays,” said James J. Saccacio, chief executive officer of
RealtyTrac. “It’s also likely that the drop in REO activity can be attributed to these processing
delays, rather than to any of the foreclosure prevention programs currently in place. It’s very
likely that we’ll see the number of REOs increase again now that most of the moratoria have
“On a positive note, it appears that demand is up in some of the harder-hit areas, particularly
on bank-owned REO properties that first time homebuyers and investors see as bargains,”
Saccacio continued. “But it’s unlikely that this increased demand will be enough to offset the
growing number of foreclosures in the pipeline, accelerated by rising unemployment rates.”
With the foreclosure market gaining speed and the recent announcement that Fannie revised investment property guidelines by loosening its loan restrictions for real estate investors and second homebuyers last week.

RealtyTrac (www.realtytrac.com) is the leading online marketplace of foreclosure properties, with more than 1.5 million default, auction and bank-owned listings from over 2,200 U.S. counties, along with detailed property, loan and home sales data. Hosting more than 3 million unique monthly visitors, RealtyTrac provides innovative technology solutions and practical education resources to facilitate buying, selling and investing in real estate. RealtyTrac’s foreclosure data has also been used by the Federal Reserve, FBI, U.S. Senate Joint Economic Committee and Banking Committee, U.S. Treasury Department, and numerous state housing and banking departments to help evaluate foreclosure trends and address policy issues related to foreclosures.

Terrible accident down the street from where I live on Orange Grove in Pasadena. The speed limit is 40mph which is way to fast for a residential area. City officials in Pasadena need to pay closer attention to how fast cars drive on this stretch of city streets.
Here’s the latest accident to take place. Several months ago there was a horrible accident involving a motorcycle at high speeds.
Earnest C. Watson Lecture , 8:00 PM – 9:30 PM, Beckman Auditorium
John Dabiri, assistant professor of aeronautics and bioengineering at Caltech, will describe how his biology-inspired approach to engineering has placed jellyfish at the center of efforts to build next-generation underwater vehicles, design more versatile onshore wind power, and even to diagnose heart failure. Information: http://events.caltech.edu/events/event-5527.html.
Wednesday, April 22, 2009 at 8:00 PM
FREE; no tickets or reservations required
|Presented By:||Caltech Committee on Institute Programs|
Jellyfish are the oldest, simplest, and arguably most successful species of swimming animal in the world. Yet they are primarily considered a nuisance on beaches or, at best, an attraction for aquarium-goers. Dabiri will describe how a biology-inspired approach to engineering has placed jellyfish at the center of efforts to build next-generation underwater vehicles, design more versatile onshore wind power, and even to diagnose heart failure. In the process, he takes engineering measurement techniques underwater, using SCUBA diving methods to study jellyfish and other fish species in their natural environment.
This lecture is the Richard C. Biedebach Memorial Lecture.
John O. Dabiri is Assistant Professor of Aeronautics and Bioengineering at Caltech. Popular Science magazine recently named Dabiri one of its “Brilliant 10” in its seventh annual listing of what it calls “the country’s top young scientists to watch.” Dabiri is listed as a scientist who is “poised to change the world.”
Please Note: This event will be digitally recorded and made available for viewing on the Caltech Theater site. Many past Watson Lectures are available for viewing online on the Caltech Theater site, and are available for purchase: DVD Order Form (PDF)
To FIM Employees:
I am writing to share the news that MySpace CEO Chris DeWolfe will be stepping down from his executive role in the near future. He has agreed to serve as a strategic advisor to the Company and will remain on the board of MySpace China.
In addition, I am currently in discussions with MySpace President Tom Anderson regarding his role within the organization.
I want to take this opportunity to thank them both for their incredible contributions to the Company, and for pioneering one of the greatest social media revolutions of our time. I wish Chris nothing but the best in any new endeavors and, like many in this industry, am eager to witness his next innovations.
I understand the importance of having a dynamic, inspiring and innovative management team, and am dedicated to ensuring that MySpace continues to benefit from the highest levels of passion and enthusiasm.
I also want to thank everyone across FIM for giving me the opportunity to work with all of you. With MySpace, IGN, Photobucket, Fox Audience Network and our Digital Publishing Group, this is an exciting collective of properties and I’m enthusiastic about the opportunities that lie ahead.
I hope to meet and work closely with many of you over the weeks and months to come.

Chris DeWolfe to Step Down as CEO of MySpace
Will serve as strategic advisor to Company
Los Angeles, CA, April 22, 2009 – MySpace CEO Chris DeWolfe and News Corporation’s Chief Digital Officer Jonathan Miller, announced today that, by mutual agreement, Mr. DeWolfe will not be renewing his contract and will be stepping down in the near future.

Additionally, Mr. Miller announced that he was in discussions with Tom Anderson, MySpace’s president, about Mr. Anderson assuming a new role in the organization.
“Chris and Tom are true pioneers and we greatly value the tremendous job they’ve done in growing MySpace into what it is today,” said Mr. Miller. “Thanks largely to their vision, MySpace has become a vibrant creative community with 130 million passionate followers worldwide. It is an enormously successful property and we look forward to building on its achievements with a new management structure we’ll announce in the near future.”
“In a little under six years we’ve grown MySpace from a small operation with seven people to a very profitable business with over 1,600 employees,” said Mr. DeWolfe. “It’s been one of the best experiences of my life and we’re proud of, and grateful to, the team of talented people who helped us along the way. We thank them, as well as the MySpace community for making our vision a reality.”
“From the very beginning, our driving passion has been simple – to create and foster a platform where people across the globe can not only meet and interact, but share music, videos, thoughts and ideas,” said Mr. Anderson. I look forward to working with Jon. I love this business, and look forward to its next chapter.”

Testimonial from fellow twitter: Waynemansfield
2. earned substantial income from being involved in Twitter
3. gained a reputation in the Twitter community of being a giver of knowledge support and encouragement.
Sam and I had a challenge to get to 5000 followers which I just pipped her to. Jokingly I said, see who gets to 10,000 first and in under 100 days and Sam “streeted it in”. I am on target but even my “superior” resources and experience were no match for the Queen of Twitter, a young woman living her dream life with husband Dominic.
You can find out how Sam achieved this remarkable feat of 10,000 followers in 8 weeks in her extraordinary FREE ebook “Become a Twitter Expert in 24hrs”
Everything step is clearly set out, each tactic is explained and a road map for you to follow is there for you to replicate. Sam even has how to plan your day to maximize your efforts.
During our challenge to 10,000, I kept asking Samantha to share with me what she was doing because I was slowly slipping behind in our race, but she kept saying “Wait for the book…”
and I can tell you Sam’s book has some quite amazing strategies that I wasn’ t able to access ANYWHERE ELSE on the internet.
So, if you want to understand Twitter, learn how to gain an army of followers, and even make some money, you should waste no time and grab the FREE copy of Sam’s Journey to Twitter Fame” now…
