Statements about Housing

A "foreclosure tax" that would take effect in 2013 could mean a high tax bill for those facing foreclosure and millions of families who modified their mortgage or had a short sale through their lender.

"There is not one single federal housing program yet that has not needed a bailout to survive."

"The average homeowner spends more than $2,000 each year on energy costs – more than on either real estate taxes or homeowners insurance."

"We [the city of Atlanta] are overbuilt on housing."

Clayton County has employed 1,300 people over the past seven months through the Neighborhood Stabilization Program.

"Have the suburbs been inundated with former residents of Atlanta housing projects? Absolutely not."
