    Zillow estimates for SoCal seem to be significantly higher than asking prices on a number of listings. I wonder if Zillow is having trouble keeping pace or is it shadow inventory? Either way, leads me to think momentum is building for a significant overshoot on the downside.

    Barry,

    Rumors are that sovereign wealth funds are interested in picking up US forclusures. If true, would that create a bottom?

    A lot of people thought that bank and investment bank stocks had hit bottom when sovereign wealth funds began taking stakes in them.
