    An up-and-down year for Baltimore's housing market
    Gauging the trajectory of the real estate market in the Baltimore region has become a hyper-local exercise — it depends on precisely where you live. While a handful of communities roared back so much last year that the number of home sales actually...
  • Home sales rose, prices fell in Baltimore area in July

    Home sales rose, prices fell in Baltimore area in July
    As if foreclosures, high unemployment and tight credit weren't enough, would-be homebuyers in the Baltimore region got more fodder for wariness Wednesday as the Dow Jones industrial average plunged more than 500 points and a new local report showed...
  • 'Occupy' finds the right cause, wrong villain

    I am glad that Occupy Baltimore is focusing on the foreclosure problem ("Occupy turns to housing," June 13), but blaming "those who amassed fortunes by speculating on collateralized mortgage payments" is off the mark. There is plenty of blame to go...
  • Sen. Obama helped create the mess President Obama 'inherited'

    All too often, I hear that President Barack Obama inherited this economic mess that we're in right now. Let's get the story straight for a change. He helped create this mess. In 2005, President Bush tried to push legislation through Congress to place...
  • Obama to blame for the recession? What Super PAC came up with that?

  • Fannie and Freddie, not banks, deserve blame

    In its editorials and Dan Rodricks columns, The Sun continues to emphasize and underscore the big lie that banks or "predatory lenders" were the cause of the housing crash ("What took so long?" Jan. 26). "Predatory lending" is a term of relatively...
  • Mortgage settlement: A good deal for Maryland

    Mortgage settlement: A good deal for Maryland
    Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler is right to sign on to the multi-state settlement with the nation's five largest banks over some aspects of the faulty procedures they used to foreclose on homes during the mortgage crisis. The state stands...
  • Mortgage settlement has shortcomings, critics say

    As the federal government and 49 states signed a landmark mortgage relief settlement Thursday, housing advocates and others pointed to shortcomings and raised questions about how the $25 billion plan would be able to provide relief to nearly 2 million...
  • Obama's 'shared sacrifice': another way of saying 'soak the rich'

    Your editorial lauding President Obama's call for a balanced approach to spending and taxes rings hollow indeed ("Shared sacrifice," Sept. 20). The president's supporters and apologists have little left to cling to other than abstract phrases and...

    Obama needs to do more to keep the jobless in their homes
    Four years into the financial crisis, foreclosure numbers remain daunting, with nearly 80,000 U.S. households receiving default notices for the first time in August. But help might be at hand, now that the Obama administration is requiring mortgage...
