Connecticut Foreclosure Inventory Has Declined By 23%

Mortgage and Lending with George Souto NMLS #65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages NMLS #65149

Finally some good news for the Connecticut Housing Market.  Hartford reported earlier this week that the Connecticut Foreclosure Inventory Has Declined By 23% from the same time last year.

This is great news in many ways, but especially for Sellers.  One of the things that has caused the prices of homes to drop in Connecticut is foreclosures.

Even though most Appraisers will take into consideration if a recent sale was a foreclosure when they are putting their comps together, foreclosures still have an impact on lower the price a property will appraise at.  This ends up having a snowball effect not only in the price a property will be able to sell for, but also on a homeowners ability to refinance their property.

We still have to many foreclosed homes on the market, but this is a good step in the right direction in getting the Connecticut Housing Market health again.  Hopefully we will see more news like this, so the Connecticut Housing Market can get back to where it needs to be in 2017.

That is great news. Foreclosure in Southern California is few and far in between.

People are finally getting teh mesage also that short sales are not all they are cracked up to be and have stopped the insanity of just walking away from their homes.

To my knowledge, there hasn't been a foreclosure in a long, long time. I'm glad to hear it's drying up in Connecticut and other parts of the country too. That was a long time for the people in CT.

Whew! I'll bet you'll be glad when you don't see them around there anymore.

The foreclosed homes is not the only issue.  The ones that are on the market will get resolved, it's the phantom homes and those going through other pre-foreclosure processes like loan modifications or bankruptcy that will hit the market at some point

Hey George Souto! Our foreclosure market is at a trickle right now however as I drive around I still see a lot of  boarded up homes owned by REOs or banks or holding companies. I'm glad they aren't dumping them all at once!

George Souto  my friend just as I just pinged you I wish I could ping Case-Schiller... they should read your post and be ashamed of their inaccurate Document of about two months ago or so... when they declared that the US Real Estate market is back on track and and they compared it to the top of the market before the crash....Endre
