South Florida Ranks No. 2 among Abandoned Foreclosures

According to RealtyTrac, South Florida comes in at No. 2 in metropolitan areas, with more than 13,000 abandoned and foreclosed properties. The State of Florida ranks No. 1 in the number of foreclosed properties abandoned by homeowners. One of the reasons for this is that banks are reluctant to maintain the property until they finally take possession, which can take years.

Lake Worth Commissioner, Scott Maxwell, is looking for a permanent solution to the problem, beginning by examining the city’s code enforcement.
