Real Estate Agent SL3287291



For the past several years, Foreclosures have been the big story in Florida and National Real Estate news.

As the market has been in the process of rebounding from the Market Crash we have seen changes in foreclosures.


In Florida, from April 2015 to April 2016, there were 41,435 fewer foreclosures. The inventory of foreclosed property is down 2.9% over the year. However, this is double the national average of 1.1%

In Lee county Florida as of 6/16/16 there are 129 properties listed on the MLS that are foreclosure properties.


It is often a misconception by Consumers that distressed properties are all in the low end price point.
