Foreclosure Distressed vs Traditional Resales

Every Quarter the CCAR (Collin County Association of Realtors) publishes a detailed report on foreclosure activity for NTREIS (North Texas MLS).  You won’t find this information everywhere.  The chart shows by quarter the last 3 years of foreclosures vs traditional resale activity.  As you can see foreclosure sales were down 14.3% from 2008.

Better Deals

I think this is because resales became a better value to the consumer. And most banks are much more difficult to work with.  As you can see the share of lender activity is still above 20% and will continue to be so for a while.  You really have to drill down specifics to county, city & neighborhood to get an accurate picture of foreclosure vs resale (regular seller) activity.  I can tell you that in Plano zip codes: 75093, 75024 & 75025 foreclosures listings have doubled since 2008.  For example: the inventory used to be 25 properties and now hovers around 50 as the banks definitely control the flow of inventory.
