    Owners of Foreclosed Homes Steal Appliances, Leave Houses in Disarray

    A house off Lee Vista in southeast Orange County, Fla., for instance, is missing its air conditioner, countertops, all the appliances and even the kitchen sink, according to MyFOXOrlando.com. There are stains on the rug and walls marked with crayon and punctured with holes punched into them.

    This is sad. Some are obviously stripping the house to sell stuff for whatever cash they can get but some are just angrily destroying stuff bringing down the value of all the houses in their neighborhood as they leave theirs in shambles.

    I though Obama was fixing it so homeowners weren't booted out?

    Only in black neighborhoods.

    I'm not blaming him I just am asking a genuine question. He REPEATEDLY stated that he was going to work to keep folks in their houses. We gave banks a crap load of money and the government bought up a ton of **** mortgages. Wasn't that ALL to keep folks in their houses?

    Obama's plan has not been applied yet has it? The crap load of money came from the last administration. And I do think that crap load of money did prevent an even worse situation than we have now.

    this is why Short Sales are so prevalent now
    banks are agreeing to allow the owner to sell the house for less than they owe instead of going into foreclosure

    Well, actually it's not even just him. Congress bought up a bunch of **** mortgages prior to Obama taking office and this was on top of throwing assloads of money at banks all in the name of keeping folks in their houses during this difficult time. What I'm asking - Obama aside if you all prefer- is was this all b.s?

    Are there, do you think, folks who are getting to stay in their houses despite falling behind or are foreclosures going through as they normally would had the government not bought any bad mortgages or given the banks monopoly money?

    In my neighborhood there are lots of foreclosures. I've heard there's lots in California and apparently in Florida they're destroying their homes on the way out.

    I just want some accountability for all the money we gave to banks. All those crap mortgages that are now government owned. The idea was to keep people in their homes so WTF happened to all that? I have an abandoned house on my block. My sister in Lake Elsinore, Ca has 3 abandoned homes in her neighborhood. These are homes that are awaiting foreclosure. In these instances the people weren't even kicked out they just left, abandoned, the property and it will sit until the bank finally does foreclose.

    Guess I'm just wondering if congress really did anything at all when they passed all that **** other than mucking up the works.

    That's not true.

    I live in nice neighborhood in North Coastal San Diego and purchased a foreclosure last year.

    When I purchased my home, the previous owners removed all the downstairs flooring, so it was just a cement slab, and also removed the air conditioning condenser. I was told the flooring was a 5inch Walnut, which would have been about $5-6k, and the air conditioning would have sold for about $3k. Also, in the backyard all the few hundred flowering bedding rocks were removed (about $3 a piece).

    Lucky for me all of this allowed me to get my house a great deal and I was able to replace everything while still saving a ton.

    The point is, all people being foreclosed on are desperate and may do anything to get income.
