Stripping of foreclosed homes continues

This story in the Daily Herald talks about how foreclosed homeowners are taking fixtures like copper wire, appliances and toilets from homes before they leave (notice the fireplace torn out of the wall in the picture). The answer to this problem is “cash for keys.” The foreclosing lender offers cash that’s paid after the owner turns over the keys and the property is checked. A Phoenix real estate agent (who’s one gutsy hombre) was charged with selling fixtures from a foreclosed home on Ebay.
