Decline in Foreclosures a Boon for Home Sellers

The most promising news for housing may not be rising sales, but falling foreclosures.

Andy Dean Photography / Shutterstock.com

While sales of new single-family homes jumped 8% in May, according to data released by the Commerce Department Monday, experts say homeowners may benefit more from the shrinking number of distressed properties on the market. Some 1.3 million properties were in the foreclosure process or bank owned in May, according to the latest data from RealtyTrac.com. That’s down 25% from a year prior and 39% off its peak in December 2010.

Those selling both new or existing homes stand to gain when there are fewer distressed listings, say experts, because foreclosures and other distressed properties often get listed at such steep discounts that higher-priced new homes and non-distressed properties cannot compete.

Foreclosures also lower the value of nearby homes. On average, home property values drop about 1% when they’re within one-eighth of a mile from a residence that’s received a foreclosure filing, according to the Woodstock Institute, which researches foreclosures, and the Georgia Institute of Technology. When the distressed homes are sold, homes within a quarter mile lose up to around 4% of their value, according to a separate study in the Journal of Real Estate Finance and Economics. Homeowners will need between two and five years to recoup that loss.

The drop off in foreclosures could help sellers to unload their homes closer to their asking prices, experts say. Distressed properties accounted for 25% of all sales in May, down from 31% in the same month a year ago, according to the National Association of Realtors. Over the same period, the median sales price of existing homes rose 8% to $182,600.

To be sure, there’s a good chance foreclosures may spike again, experts say. “There are a lot of foreclosure properties to come,” says Leonard Baron, principal at LPB Services, a real estate consulting firm in San Diego, Calif. Lenders are holding on to roughly 450,000 foreclosed homes that they haven’t listed for sale yet, according to RealtyTrac.com. Separately, there are roughly 1.5 million homes described as “shadow inventory” – distressed properties that aren’t currently listed for sale , according April data (the latest) from CoreLogic.

In the meantime, the smaller number of foreclosure listings may even be a boon for some buyers. Before one can purchase a home, an appraiser will determine its value, often taking into account the price at which foreclosed homes nearby sold for. That will result in a lower appraised value for the home, which could make it harder for the buyer to get approved for a mortgage.

      /**
      * @class Ext.Action
      * An Action is a piece of reusable functionality that can be abstracted out of any particular component so that it
      * can be usefully shared among multiple components. Actions let you share handlers, configuration options and UI
      * updates across any components that support the Action interface (primarily {@link Ext.Toolbar}, {@link Ext.Button}
      * and {@link Ext.menu.Menu} components).
      * Aside from supporting the config object interface, any component that needs to use Actions must also support
      * the following method list, as these will be called as needed by the Action class: setText(string), setIconCls(string),
      * setDisabled(boolean), setVisible(boolean) and setHandler(function).
      * Example usage:
      *
      // Define the shared action. Each component below will have the same
      // display text and icon, and will display the same message on click.
      var action = new Ext.Action({

    • Did a 5th grader wrote this? Foreclosure is up from last month and from last year. What a garbage article.

    • Great article! It looks like there may be a new wave of foreclosures coming this fall though. To give you a feel for the potential enormity of the predicted tidal wave of available foreclosed homes, let’s take a look at the current numbers: As the end of June nears, there are about 80 to100 properties scheduled for auction each week in King County, and this has been fairly typical for the last year or so.

      That number could uptick to a whopping 600 houses offered per week by Bank of America in Oct. for King County, and that’s not counting the potential inventory offered by additional banks as well. An uptick this huge could signal a much-needed recovery in the housing market, making investors happy and eager to hear more details.

    • Paulina, I completely agree. I feel like I read a gleaming report from RealtyTrac only to find that my excitement was premature when I read a more accurate report from a different site. I think that this article, however, does point out that the time to sell is now.

    • A “boon” for sellers? Give me a break! Just like being the victim of a felony…and then hearing a whimper…sorry.
