South Florida Foreclosures Down 33 Percent

July 26, 2017 Posted by kingcade

The increase in home prices and a stable job market have caused foreclosures to decline across South Florida.  The first half of this year, 12,463 homes were in some stage of foreclosure, down 33 percent from a year ago and 56 percent from the same period in 2015, according to ATTOM Data Solutions.

Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach will close out the year with a fraction of the total that occurred during the 2009 peek of the housing crisis, when there were 172,854 properties in the process of foreclosure.  Statewide, foreclosures are down 34 percent from a year ago and 56 percent from 2015.

South Florida is on pace to finish 2017 with a foreclosure rate of about 1 percent.  Numbers have not been that low in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach since 2006.

South Florida’s Unemployment Rates Drop to 2008 Lows

November 20, 2012 Posted by kingcade

South Florida recently experienced its lowest rate of unemployment since 2008. The combined unemployment claims dropped eight percent during October from the previous year. However, South Florida experienced declining rates of as much as 25 percent during the beginning months of 2012. In Broward County, October’s first-time unemployment was down 12 percent from a previous three-month average. In Miami-Dade, October’s rate was down five percent from the previous year. Another positive sign for the economy is that job growth rates increased during the month of October.

Although the numbers are rising for the job market and unemployment filings are down, economists are disappointed the recovery is not at the speed it was during the end of 2011 and the start of 2012. Many believe the presidential election slowed down the job growth because companies were hesitant to hire during the campaigning process.

South Florida Ranks Number One in Credit Card Delinquencies

May 31, 2012 Posted by kingcade

CredAbility, a non-profit credit counseling agency, conducted a study of 25 metro areas in the United States to determine the financial standings of major cities across the country. According to the study, Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade counties ranked highest in overall consumer credit card delinquencies. South Florida also ranked fourth of the 25 metro areas with the highest number of bankruptcy filings during the first quarter of 2012.

Much of the credit problems in South Florida can be attributed to lenders handing out credit cards to freely during the recession. Many South Floridians used their credit cards as spending money as they suffered pay cuts and job losses. Over time lenders began taking steps to hold borrowers to higher standards and not lending out money as freely as before. The financial problems for many South Floridians are not expected to ease up until the job market becomes more secure, which could take a couple more years.

Bankruptcy Attorney Timothy Kingcade Discusses Bankruptcy Trends with South Florida’s Sun-Sentinel

September 10, 2011 Posted by kingcade

Bankruptcy attorney Timothy Kingcade was recently quoted in the Sun-Sentinel and talked bankruptcy trends with workplace reporter, Marcia Pounds. The story was published on September 2, 2011 and discussed how the number of South Florida consumers filing for bankruptcy fell nearly 21 percent, to 2,690 in August, from 3,387 that same month in 2010.

Timothy Kingcade attributes this trend to a stalled home foreclosure process and people being unable to afford to file bankruptcy. “I see so many people who have been unemployed for 18 months. They say, ‘I need to file, but I need a job first,’ he said.
