Brandie said she had stopped making the mortgage payments 11 months before, after she lost more than half her home child care business due to the continued weak economy. Her husband Dan, a fulltime air conditioning distributor, did not learn of the situation until he returned home to find his family evicted, their household possessions removed to the front lawn and the home repossesed by the bank. A nationwide glut of foreclosed homes is expected to depress U.S. housing values for years. (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)
