US treasury Sees Millions More Foreclosures

According to this Reuters article, U.S. Treasury sees millions more foreclosures, even with the ever increasing efforts of the Federal Government via the Home Affordable Modification Program, or HAMP, foreclosures will increase.  In fact according to Michael Barr, assistant Treasury secretary for financial institutions, "even if HAMP is a total success, we should still expect millions of foreclosures".

So we have an insiders view that foreclosures will continue to increase.  We also have the readily available news that unemployment keeps increasing.  Can somebody please explain to me how the real estate market is improving in spite of this these things?  To me, an improving real estate market defies logic and reason.  I see no evidence that the real estate market will improve anytime soon.
