In Other California Real Estate News, Several Sacramento Legislators Are In Foreclosure Trouble

Remember 2006? It was just before the "bubble" burst and brought so many folks tumbling back to reality from wherever it was they were located before. Here's a bit of real estate news from Sacramento that finds several legislators in foreclosure trouble. They were elected at the hight of "market euphoria" time … when everyone seemingly believed that market forces had somehow been miraculously changed and values would never again go down … and they bought Sacramento residences (instead of renting) as investments and centers of operation.

Well … sorry. Bad timing, guys. Market behavior, of course, had not been altered forever, and these legislators are caught in the same vice as millions of their constituents.

Here's an interesting article from Patrick McGreevy of the Los Angeles Times:

Real estate bubble bursts for California lawmakers too

"In filings required by the state, Mendoza reported receiving $6000 each from Groom's daughter and Beatriz Ricartti, a Los Angeles businesswoman who subsequently donated to Mendoza's political coffers. Covina physician Shura Moreno invested $30000."
