Foreclosures flood the market

This year, sellers' biggest competition might not just be a neighbor with a pool. Bargain-basement foreclosures have flooded most markets, putting the prices of others' homes at a competitive disadvantage.

  • Forget about making a killing on your home. Price aggressively.
