Real estate market analysts have been hard at work crunching the latest round of numbers but what does it all mean? Wednesday the news looked optimistic for San Joaquin when it was reported that the area experienced a second quarter decline in foreclosures despite the fact that Stockton still remained 96th in the nation for foreclosures. However on the heels of that report it was announced that US home seizures had reached a new record and are now 25% higher than a year ago and that California accounted for 1/5th of the national total. UCLA economists predicted that California is on the road to recovery, but it will be slow stating that unemployment is not likely to fall below 10% until late 2012. This is something to look forward to for San Joaquin county which currently ranks 99th in the nation for employment and housing prices.
