“The dramatic drop in the share of distressed sales throughout the state reflects a market that is fully transitioning from the housing downturn,” said CAR. President Kevin Brown.  “Significant home price appreciation over the past five years has lifted the market value of many underwater homes, and as a result, many homeowners have gained significant equity in their homes, resulting in fewer short sales and foreclosures.”

Students without high school diplomas do not fare as well as those with that certificate in hand.  Drop outs are more likely to earn less and get overlooked for promotions, if employed; receive welfare because it is harder to find a job; have less healthy children; commit crimes; and consequently, serve time.   On average, annual salaries are about 30 percent less for drop outs, and earning power only goes up with more education.  The military won’t accept recruits who don’t have a diploma either, another option lost.
