Summer Brings Sales - In Foreclosures X
 
As summer continues warm, we find that the foreclosure sales in Pierce County are dropping a bit at this time.  There were twenty-one (21) foreclosure sales found last week in the Tacoma newspaper (TNT),  but there were only sixteen (16) found this week.
It looks very much like there is a bulge hitting which may then taper off as fall gets here. Though I keep seeing, and hearing about how many foreclosures still hanging on the books out here (and really popping out of the woodwork in some other areas of the country), it … (9 comments)

Like last week which was split over four dates this weekalso had four dates. Next week had the next most with 17 (nearly as many as all four last week.) The other four were split as follows: two weeks out on Aug. 30th - one, four weeks out on Sept. 13 there was one, … (0 comments)

Summer Brings Sales - In Foreclosures VIII
As summer continues warm, we find that the sales are down a bit now.  There were twenty-three (23) foreclosure sales found last week in the Tacoma newspaper (TNT),  but there were only eighteen (18) this week.
Unlike last week which was split over four dates this week features only two dates. Four weeks out on September 6th had only three(a real drop in weekly counts from previous reports). Next week had the next most with 15 (nearly twice last week's eight).  As is normal, these sales will take place on the 2nd floor plaza of … (2 comments)

As summer continues warm, we find that the sales are down a bit now.  There were twenty-three (23) foreclosure sales found this week in the Tacoma newspaper (TNT),  which is down seven from last week’s thirty (30).
These were split over four dates. Four weeks out on August 30th had the most with nine (not quite half the largest report from last week). Next week had the next most with 8 (same as last week's report).   There were also four listings for two weeks out on August 16th.  The final two notes were for … (2 comments)

As summer continues warm, we find that the sales are heating up as well.  There were thirty (30) foreclosure sales found this week in the Tacoma newspaper (TNT),  which is up nearly double to last week’s sixteen.

Next week had the next most with 8.   There were also two listings for two weeks out on August 9th.  The final note was for one that is five … (2 comments)

pierce county: Tacoma Gets Another Parade! - 07/24/13 05:42 AM
Tacoma Gets Another Parade!
For many years Tacoma regularly held parades with a military emphasis.  Something to be expected with Fort Lewis and McChord Air Force Base (now Joint Base Lewis McChord) nearby.   For whatever reason, those parades have been on hiatis.
This year there is a renewal of this great tradition.  The Daffodil Festival group (who put on the annual Daffodil Festival Parades in the spring) are partnering with the City of Tacoma to present a "Celebration of Military Service Parade" this Saturday evening, August 24th in downtown Tacoma.
The parade's purpose is to honor and celebrate the large number … (8 comments)

Summer Brings Sales - In Foreclosures V
As Summer heats up, we find that the sales are heating up as well.  There were sisteen (16) foreclosure sales found this week in the  newspaper (TNT),  which is down a bit from the twenty-four last week.
These were split over only two dates (in comparison to last week's four). Four weeks out on August 16th had the most with nearly all -- fourteen. Next week had the other two.   Along with the five from last week for the 16th, that brings the total for that day to nineteen (19).  As is normal, these … (10 comments)

Moving Up In AR World
This morning, as I logged in, and post this blog, I have moved up into a bit more of a rarefied portion of Active Rain.
This post will put me into the top one thousand (by points) in the AR universe.  I know it is a far cry from Lenn Harley who passed two million points today - but it is important to me - putting me in the top One Thousand out of over 320,000 participants.
For those who might be interested here is the breakdown for all my counts:
Amongst all users: in top … (25 comments)

Summer Brings Sales - In Foreclosures II
As Summer heats up, we find that the sales are heating up as well.  Though there were only ten foreclosure sales noted in the  newspaper (TNT) this week the number jumped up to twenty-one!
These were split almost evenly between next Friday, July 12th and four weeks out on August 2nd. Next week had a couple extra, with a total of eleven sales scheduled.  Next month's first sales were showing nine scheduled.  The other two were evenly split between two weeks out on July 19th, and five weeks out on August 9th.  As is normal, … (6 comments)

Spring Brings Sales - In Foreclosures - VIII                
Well, now that summer has arrived, according to the calendar,  I may have to update this title, but in the meantime, it is time to review what happened in the foreclosure listings last week on Friday for the Pierce County Washington area..
Turns out that the numbers went back up again.  There were a total of 13 listings for upcoming foreclosure sales in the paper on Friday.  There was one for July 19th, and about half the rest were for June 28th, and the others for … (6 comments)

Spring Brings Sales - In Foreclosures - VII
Well, the numbers moved again. Today's legal notices showed a steep jump from
last week's four, as there were seven (7) notices of upcoming foreclosures in this
morning's newspaper (TNT - Tacoma) for Pierce County.
Of these, six of them were the four week notice before the proposed sales on
July 5 (I wonder how many buyers are going to be around that long weekend?),
while the other one was for the following week.
With the other news that sales of homes listed for sales have gone up significantly
compared to the … (0 comments)

Spring Brings Sales - In Foreclosures - VI
Another Friday, and time for the weekly report on the legal notices about the upcoming foreclosure auctions in the Pierce County area. 
As those who have been following this for a bit know, about two months ago there was a spike in listings with 40 one week, since then the numbers have been going down and up, but mostly down.
Today's TNT legal notices showed only 4 (four) listings for upcoming foreclosure auction sales at the County Building.  All four were fore sale date of June 28th -- so they were getting … (2 comments)

Spring Brings Sales - In Foreclosures - IV
Here we go again, with the numbers climbing again this week.  There were sixteen foreclosure sales listed in the legal notices section of the local newspaper (The Tacoma News Tribune).  This is equal to the total of the last two weeks combined.
Of these, fifteen of them were for sales to be taking place next Friday, May 24th. So it looks like the county courthouse 2nd floor entry plaza will be a busy place in mid-morning. The other one was set for sale on June 20th.

Spring Brings Sales - In Foreclosures - II
Earlier this week, I reported on the number of foreclosures that appeared in the local newspaper last Friday (40).
As it is again Friday, the newspaper has listed the upcoming foreclosure sales today.  This time there were only 10.  Maybe last week was just an anomaly.  The listings this week include sales that will be held beginning next Friday -- and run through sales scheduled through the first Friday of June.  A quick glance shows the balances due on these loans running from about $140,000 to over $500,000. 
It is interesting that several … (11 comments)

pierce county: Spring Brings Sales - In Foreclosures - 04/29/13 03:15 AM
SPRING BRINGS SALES - In Foreclosures As spring has come upon us, the sales of homes has begun in earnest.  Some are even complaining about lack of inventory to meet the needs of their buyers.  This brings about what has not been seen in some time - bidding wars.
In light of such a change in the real estate market, another group has decided it must be time to get into the market again.  Those players are the banks, who have foreclosed properties to sell.  After several months of NO foreclosure notices in the local newspaper, the number of foreclosure notices … (11 comments)
