"Despite reports of a thawing housing market, yet another wave of foreclosures appears to be looming, real estate records filed in multiple metro-Denver counties indicate.
The recording of deed-of-trust assignments in Colorado — the ownership rights of mortgages and the ability to foreclose on them — has more than doubled in the first five months of the year compared with the same period last year, The Denver Post has found.
Some experts say the increase is a sign that lenders are gearing up for a new round of foreclosures, and, if only half the filings become actual foreclosure cases, it could approach the worst of the foreclosure crisis that mushroomed in 2007."

I've been researching foreclosures that aren't on the market. About 10 mos, ago I met an insider that told me that some banks are cleaning up the paper trail before their REOs go to market.

I'm having a tough time making a decision on pulling the trigger for purchasing a house and reading stuff like this is not helpful.
The next 6-12 months will be interesting, especially immediately after the election.

Nothing will happen until election. A lot might change after. Plenty of foreclosures are out there looming, last year to not pay taxes on debt forgiveness as well...
