Banks Control Foreclosure Market

Banks are more and more controlling the foreclosure real estate market by slashing prices to move their inventory. According to Dataquick (, over 43% of all Southern California home sales were “foreclosure resale” transactions:

“Foreclosure resales continue to be a dominant factor in today’s Southern California market, accounting for 43.6 percent of all resales. That was up from a revised 41.8 percent in June, and up from 7.9 percent in July 2007. Foreclosure resales — where a foreclosure had occurred at some point in the prior 12 months — ranged from 22.2 percent of all resales in Orange County last month to 64.4 percent in Riverside County.”

These “foreclosure resale” transactions are considered distressed sales, and if you see an over-proportionate amount of them in a certain area, it drags down the “median home price” and the “comps” below “fair market value”. If you can purchase a bargain property AT or even BELOW these price levels, you’re getting an excellent deal!

We’ve seen deals from our bank-owned sources that you could get for 30-50% BELOW “foreclosure resale” comps (click here for a sample)! Some of these properties are still available, even in the San Fernando Valley.
