The American home foreclosure crisis has been at a fever pitch for months now. Drive down any residential street, and you'll see unattended lawns and for sale signs.

Then, to put a human face on the issue, we hear from Nancy Harris of the Los Angeles-based Harnan Financial Group, which helps people finance and buy property, and "John," who saved his home from foreclosure last year.
