There’s A Major “Caveat” with the numbers below! Based on a 7% REO sold rate, which does appear to be an indication REOs are only moderately negatively impacting this market. It’s also stated here that an article (The Landmines Within by Michael Tarabotto http://activerain.com/blogsview/930436/The-Landmines-Within ) stated that as much as 70% of REOs never make it into the MLS – Meaning that it might be impossible to know or state the exact # of competing REOs if they’re not being listed and that the foreclosure problem could be larger if up to 70% of REOs aren’t being listed. MLS is reporting 46 current REO listings for all Ascension MLS Areas out of a total 951 total listings. So, 5% of all Ascension MLS Listings are Foreclosures!
REO is “Real Estate Owned”!
