Distressed Homes All Time High

This fall, the housing market may avoid the slide that has occurred each of

the last three years because of an improving balance between supply

and demand, declining REO sale shares and a slowly declining foreclosure inventory.

 

2.       A lower likelihood of foreclosures flooding the housing market is beneficial

because the market is more likely to absorb the inventory without dramatic

changes in price.

 

3.       Many borrowers in both the boom and “rust-belt” markets lack the means

to prevent serious delinquency due to their limited ability to refinance at a

lower mortgage interest rate. Policies designed to offer options for borrowers

to lower their interest rates further can help decrease the flow of future delinquencies.

 

4.       The current share of non-distressed sales is at its highest level since August 2008,

positively impacting home prices, and is a sign of real improvement in the housing market.
