Zillow's new negative equity report shows nearly 16M U.S. homeowners, or 31.4% of all homeowners with a mortgage, were underwater in 2012 - a bit better than 2011's 32.4% but higher than estimates from CoreLogic and others. “It’s a $1.2T problem," Zillow's Stan Humphries says. “We think 2012 is going to be a great year for home sales, but a mixed picture for prices."

  • Expect this number to rise through the years as real estate declines in value, interest rates go up, taxes up, sentiment down, inventory up, student debt up, economy down.
