The Housing Market’s Slow Recovery The housing market is on the rebound in Northeast Ohio and across the nation, a slow steady recovery has experts encouraged. In 15 Northeast Ohio counties, sales of previously owned houses have gone up for 14 consecutive months. And home prices are up, too. We'll talk about the housing uptick, check on mortgage rates and refinancing decisions, and hear about help for those who've lost their homes to foreclosure. Join host Mike McIntyre Wednesday morning at 9 on 90.3.
