Distressed Properties Account for Nearly Half of Home Sales
Per this Real Estate Economy Watch article, Half of January Home Sales were Distressed Properties, sales of Distressed Properties (i.e. foreclosures, REO's and short sales) accounted for almost 50% of all home sales in January 2011. This represents yet another increase in the trend of increased market share for distressed properties. Currently, several real estate markets are already experiencing sales of distressed properties accounting for well over 50% of all home sales. Overall, the article speculates that across the country sales of distressed properties could make up well over 50% of home sales in the near future. Based on what I am personally seeing in and around Nashville Tennessee, I believe that foreclosures and short sales will ultimately account for at least 10% to 80% of all home sales depending on the town. Brentwood, Franklin and Nolensville will likely be on the lower end of that range with distressed properties accounting for 10% to 20% of all home sales. Murfreesboro and Smyrna will likely be in the middle of that range with distressed properties accounting for 25% to 50% of all home sales. LaVergne (La Vergne) and Antioch will likely be in the upper end of that range with distressed properties accounting for 60% to 80% of all home sales. Overall, it is clear that distressed property sales will account for an increasing share of the housing market in all price segments for quite some time.
