We have all seen the vacant houses that are abandoned with stickers on the windows. You’ve probably seen a lot of them finally get foreclosed and then eventually sold. With the real estate market picking up, is this problem going away? The answer is no, at least not yet for those of us in Central Florida.
We recently saw an article by Kyle Kennedy in The Ledger regarding distressed home sales. Distressed sales are sales that involve foreclosure, short sale, etc. While the overall percentage of distressed sales is lower than it was the last two years, Polk county still has the 4th highest percentage of distressed sales for metro areas in the US. Would you believe that 28.9% of sales in October were distressed according to data from Realty-Trac? Tampa-St. Pete was following closely at 23.9%.
