A recent Article was published in the market.

  • CAPE CORAL, Fla. – Stunning new numbers released Tuesday morning show a huge increase in the number of foreclosures in Southwest Florida.
  • The property database company, Attom Data Solutions says the number of homeowners who have started the foreclosure process in Cape Coral and Fort Myers, has gone up 59% since last July.


Why are we making this video? in relation to the report of increases in foreclosures in Southwest Florida

The article in the way it was presented was misleading at best.
Math matters…
The way math is presented matters even more.
I do not dispute the numbers, the way it is presented is irresponsible.
It is misleading to the general public in an attempt to sell more clicks on their website…

Why use percentage versus the real numbers?

If it bleeds it leads.
The percentages look better than “we had 107 Mortgage-Related Lis Pendins in July 2018 versus 85 in 2017”.
