Housing market improving
For years, it seems like we were only reporting negative headlines on the housing market.
Now: Foreclosures are falling, sales are rising, and prices are up.
And that means a much better situation for struggling homeowners.
A new reading by Realty-Trac shows that the surge in prices has helped almost two-million homeowners get back above water on their mortgages.
There are still nine million homeowners seriously underwater - meaning their debt exceeds their home's value by 25% or more.
That's down from 10.9 million, or 26-percent, of all properties a year earlier.
