Foreclosures for Sale in Montgomery County, Maryland  

The residential real estate market in Montgomery County, Maryland is quite active with 1,049 real estate settlements during June at an average sold price of $506,409, up 3.47% from the same month last year.  The median sold price was $413,000, up 8.36% from last June. 

Many are asking if they can find bargains in the inventory of lender owned foreclosures.  When you read the national news about the high inventory of foreclosures, many assume that the information also applies to the local market. 

Today, there are 2,560 active listings of homes for sale in Montgomery County.  These are the properties listed on MRIS, the regional multiple listing service.  253 (9.88%) of the active listings are short sale pre-foreclosures. Only 30 (1.17%) of the active listings are in the inventory of lender owned foreclosures.

When you take a close look at local markets, the statistics may differ greatly from what is happening in the national market.  In Montgomery County, homes are being sold with an average of only 56 days on the market and the average sold price is 96.01% of the average list price.

From the perspective of home buyers and real estate investors, there is a shortage of lender owned foreclosures and they quickly go to contract when properly priced.  Many buyers are facing multiple contract completion in preferred locations. 

Cash is king and sellers prefer the offers with few contingencies.  Those that plan to use mortgage financing should have a pre-approval letter in hand.  Please contact us with your questions on the summer real estate market.  We will be happy to recommend lenders and guide you through the home purchase process.

Really important information for home buyers to understand. There are no more, "let's offer 25% below the list price because it is a buyer's market." Best of luck to buyer's in Montgomery County, MD and the information you are providing is essential to their success.

Hi Roy, thanks for the note on my blog post. I occaisonall come on ActiveRain, but I now do most of my blog postings on my Wordpress site findpinehursthomes.com. The SEO is a bit better.  I do miss conversing with the many friends I have met on AR, though. Especially you. All is well here in Pinehurst and I hope the same for you and Dolores. I keep track on Facebook!

Hi Roy,  Our foreclosures are way down in Denver as well.  Not sure if the banks are still hanging on to Shadow Inventory, but for now, non-distressed properties are the majority of sales out this way.

Good Afternoon Roy, I have to say I love the way you take the time to explain the market and not just paste stat after stat.  It lets the reader get a real feel of what is going on in your market. Have a great Friday.

Roy, good to see how well your market is doing....multiple offers is a good thing; a shortage of lender owned foreclosures..another good thing.
