By Chris B Johnson Realtor,  It's been about nine years since the start of the U.S. foreclosure crisis, which peaked at 7.7 million houses in foreclosure in 2012.
With the passage of the years, once-distressed homeowners with restored credit are reentering the housing market, even though damaged credit profiles and lender rules will greatly restrict the overall share of those eligible to buy.
According to the National Association of Realtors, California, Florida, and Arizona, where the foreclosure crisis started, are expected to have the largest share of return buyers within the next decade.
Nearly a million of those former owners already … (2 comments)

The market has been cooling over time and prices plateaued for a while. Despite the consistent decrease in MAI, we’re in the Seller’s zone. Watch for changes in MAI. If the MAI resumes it’s climb, prices will likely follow suit. If the MAI drops consistently or falls into the Buyer’s zone, watch for downward pressure on prices.

Moorpark Short Sale Map- Ventura County Short Sale, 
Though the housing market is recovering nicely, it is not doing quite as well as some analysts had predicted. There has been no shortage of excuses offered as to why this is: the rise in interest rates, more stringent lending standards, the weather.
However, we feel that there is one factor that is most responsible for curtailing the number of houses sold – the number of houses available for sale!
Inventory Levels are BELOW Historic Norms In a recent economic forecast, Freddie … (0 comments)
