Buyers Are Missing The Foreclosure Bubble - Springfield Mo Foreclosures

Over the past few years, the Springfield Missouri real estate market has been saturated with foreclosures.  In the middle of this foreclosure crisis, there's good news.

Greene County Foreclosure statistics for 2009 - 2011

 The number of foreclosures have dropped significantly since 2009

Many of the foreclosures in 2009 was attributed to local real estate scams, forcing many homeowners to lose their Greene county real estate.

I can not track the number of short sales, but I do attribute the drop in foreclosures for 2011 to homeowners aggressively pursuing short sales.

More and more sellers are finding out that short sales can help them salvage their credit much faster than a foreclosure.  Short sales can also help them purchase a home sooner than a foreclosure.

If you or any one you know is considering a short sale, contact the "K" Team to get your FREE initial consultation. We have helped over a 100 families avoid foreclosure, you are not alone.

Thanks for the Heads Up on the Bubble, usually we don't know we are in one until it passes.

And do you want to enter the Bubble - if there is one ?

Usually something to avoid, we thought - but what do we know?

cheers

Good Evening Kay:

Excellent post about the Greene County Foreclosure Situation.  It is sad that these scam artists are able to exist in this country.. Let's hope that you've turned the corner on foreclosures

It is a great time for home buyers to take advantage of the bargain prices and record low mortgage interest rates.

Have an outstanding weekend!

Hi Kay.  I think most of the country is seeing foreclosure inventory dropping.

It seems there is definitley more awareness of the general public that they have options besides letting their home go to foreclosure.

C Lloyd, if short sales are working more, maybe sellers will get the information and get help.

Roy, so true.  I think we'll have a great year with so many foreclosures now behind us.  I'm told that the 5 year arms may bring another wave of foreclosures.

Kay ... I Agree ... Our market has also seem and increase in the amount of short sales and a decrease in the number of foreclosures.  I think it is a direct correlation!  Great Blog!

I do too Lisa.  We'll find out when the figures come out next year.  Maybe by then, I'll be able to track the short sales as well.
