Why do you think the market is so tight? I have been looking for foreclousure properties iin thZillow won't let me complete my question... I am a cash buyer looking for a home in the IE area of So Cal. Everything has multiple bids on it although there are a ton of properties that are just sitting there vacant and are not listed. One example is Ocotillo Street in Lake Elsinore. Every other house is in some stage of foreclosure, yet one one or two are listed. What the heck is going on? I have tried the Redfin IE discussion boards, but those people are nuts!I Is there anyone who is actually looking at real estate these days?October 15 2009 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
