Foreclosures on the Rise Again – Surprised?
Jul 14, 2011

RealtyTrac just announced that foreclosures are once again on the rise after 2 months of declining. Foreclosures increased by  4% in June as compared to May.  Should this really be a surprise?  2011 started with reports of an enormous amount of shadow inventory, along with projections per state on how long it would take for the market to absorb this inventory.

These projections were soon forgotten during the second quarter when foreclosure started to decline.  Note that zero states were projected to absorb their shadow inventory by the beginning of the second quarter.  Don’t be fooled, the shadow inventory is still there, and looming over all of our heads.

As a professional in the real estate market it can be difficult to keep your eye on the ball if we run from news article to article. On any given day you can find editorials of great optimism or pessimism, with both sides citing certain statistics while ignoring others.
