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.

Miami–Dade has Second Highest Rate of Repeat Foreclosures in the Nation

May 17, 2017 Posted by kingcade

Miami-Dade County has the second-highest rate of repeat foreclosures of any major market, according to a newly released report from Attom Data Solutions.  New York City took the number one spot.

Miami-Dade’s rate was 32 percent, followed by Los Angeles County with 39 percent and Maricopa County (Phoenix), with 26 percent, according to Attom’s April 2017 report.  New York’s rate was 54 percent.

A repeat foreclosure is defined as a foreclosure start filed in 2016 on a property with an address and owner’s last name combination that also showed a previous foreclosure start with the same property address and owner combination in the last 10 years, according to Attom.

Nationwide foreclosure activity in April dropped to the lowest level since November 2015. Miami-Dade saw its foreclosure rate fall 35 percent in April, year-over-year, to 986 foreclosure filings from 1,509 filings in April 2016.

Miami-Dade’s rate of foreclosures still remains higher than Broward County, which had 730 and Palm Beach County 578 in April.

South Florida’s Foreclosure Rate Continues to Drop

January 10, 2017 Posted by kingcade

A recent report shows foreclosure activity on the decline, bringing South Florida’s rank to 10th in the nation among other metropolitan areas.  One in every 786 housing units in South Florida was in some stage of foreclosure last month, according to the real estate research company ATTOM Data Solutions.   This number has fallen nearly 18 percent compared to the previous year.

Miami-Dade had the largest number of distressed properties with 1,479 homes in the foreclosure pipeline last month. Broward came in second with 1,012 housing units, followed by Palm Beach with 657.

Miami was one of the hardest hit cities during the housing market crash. This was in part due to lenient mortgage requirements and a surplus of new condo projects.

As home prices recovered and more buyers began purchasing properties in all-cash, South Florida’s foreclosure rate has steadily declined over the past few years.
