I was struck…

…by comments from a real estate expert on CNBC today (sorry I missed his name).  He stated that 20 percent of all house owners/mortgages are under water and another 33 percent are no more than 10 percentage points away from being under water.  He also stated that this will take “many years” to overcome.
