Marketplace Morning Report

with David Brancaccio

Marketplace Morning Report for Thursday, March 13, 2014

Find out more about “zombie properties": houses vacated by the homeowner, lingering for years without being repossessed or resold while attracting vandals and blight. We explain why they matter in the post-recession housing recovery. Plus, with Amazon reportedly poised to release its new TV set-top box which will allow viewers to stream video over the Internet, we take a closer look at the set-top box wars. Hear about how the California legislature is crowdsourcing a bill regarding probate tax code.  Will it work? Also, the potential winding down of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, and what it means for homeowners and buyers.
