Check this out. Scary, right?

The Center for Responsible Lending has some awesome technology on its homepage, but if you’re not up for it, don’t go there.

Ok, you looked, didn’t you? And you saw it.  

A foreclosure ticker.

Sure the idea of a ticker is pretty clever. But then the idea takes root. It’s a new foreclosure happening in the United States EVERY 13 SECONDS.

That’s when it hits.

Every 13 seconds a family is displaced.

Every 13 seconds lives are uprooted.

Every 13 seconds neighbors lose neighbords.

Every 13 seconds banks take over empty houses.

Every 13 seconds.

Take a little time. Count to 13. It really doesn’t take long, does it?
