 Florida posted the nation’s highest state foreclosure rate for the sixth consecutive month in February, according to RealtyTrac’s Foreclosure Market Report for February 2013: One in every 282 housing units with a mortgage had a foreclosure filing during the month more than three times the national average.   A total of 31,726 Florida properties had a foreclosure filing during February, up 6 percent from the previous month and up 20 percent year-to-year, reaching a 16-month high. Foreclosure filings include default notices, scheduled auctions and bank repossessions.   Florida cities (population of 200,000 or more) also accounted for seven of the nation’s 10 highest metro foreclosure rates in February; Miami’s metro area posted the highest rate in the nation (one in every 219 housing uni...

The Commerce Department said Tuesday that new-home sales rose nearly 16 percent in January to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 437,000. The percentage increase was the largest in nearly 20 years.

very interesting read: from Florida realtors.org   Realtor complaint website shut down   ORLANDO, Fla. – Jan. 25, 2013 – Florida Realtors News first reported a problematic website that appeared to post fake reviews of Realtors – most of them negative – two weeks ago. Yesterday, the website was apparently taken down. If a Realtor contacted the website, realtor-complaints.com, he was told that his negative review would be removed for a fee. According to Stacey Moncrieff, an associate editor with NAR’s Real Estate Today magazine, a number of factors seemed to suggest that website owners faked the reviews, such as similarly worded negative comments applied to more than one Realtor. Once the website came to the attention of Florida Realtors and other state associations, the National Associat...

Ending at least some home-mortgage interest deductions will likely be part of talks to reduce the U.S. budget deficit, was an article I read in the New York Times!!High-income taxpayers would likely be most affected by such a decision, the newspaper said, if we make $$ in America then I guess we have to be penalized.Meanwhile, President Barack Obama and top congressional leaders stepped up talks in search of a deal to avoid the year-end “fiscal cliff,” officials said. The fiscal cliff is a combination of big spending cuts and tax increases scheduled to take effect Jan. 1 unless Congress stops it.Mortgage interest tax deductionDiminishing or ending the mortgage-tax break, especially for high-income taxpayers, is likely to be included in that discussion, the Times said of the deduction lo...

Realty trac eleased its National Foreclosure Report for August. It found 57,000 completed U.S. foreclosures, down from 75,000 in August 2011 and 58,000 one month earlier, I guess we are moving in the right direction, very slow though, just sayingFlorida ranked second nationally in total number of completed foreclosures for the 12 months ending in August 2012 with 91,899 – 11.7 percent of the nation’s foreclosure housing stocks. Only California had more with 110,000. However, the percent of homes in Florida’s foreclosure inventory also dropped year-to-year, falling 1.1 percent since August 2011.
