Warren County Ohio Foreclosure Update: Sheriff's Sales through 07/06/2015

Warren County Ohio Foreclosure Update: Sheriff's Sales through 07/06/2015

April was a mixed month for Warren County real estate.  In some ways more activity with more homes coming on the market and more going under contract, but completed sales dropped in most communities for the month.  We expect May to be a more typical month for completed sales.

So what's happening with the Warren County distressed property market?  Are you interested in short sales and foreclosures?

Stick with us and you'll know practically everything you might want to know about Warren County foreclosure and short sale activity over the last month!  AND at the end links to search for Warren County foreclosed homes for sale and Warren County short sales for sale.

We'll start with the trend chart of Sheriff's Sales scheduled with this revision including TWO additional weeks of sales and three weeks of no sales scheduled.   The BLACK DIAGONAL line one the chart is the trend line and clearly shows that Warren County foreclosures continue to decrease over the last year plus.

Homes scheduled for foreclosure include a variety of sources:  builders, "regular" home owners, tax liens, estates, etc.   And some homes scheduled for foreclosure WILL have the sheriff's auction canceled, either due to catching up on payments, a loan modification or the owner sells their home prior and uses the proceeds to get right with the bank (e.g. adequate equity or a short sale arrangement).

If you want details on exactly what homes are scheduled for foreclosure, click Warren County's Sheriff's Foreclosures to access the official list from the Warren County Sheriff's website and learn how to make an offer on a foreclosed home.

Below is a summary of the recent foreclosure trends.  Note in the Net row for the first table, Red font is a trend we see as negative, Green as positive, Black as neutral.

Summary of Warren County Ohio Foreclosure and Short Sale Information:

This report is almost a carbon copy of the previous month when it comes to distressed properties!  Almost the same number sold and close to the same number for sale.  Basically, not much going on in this segment of the market.

And as far as the scheduled Sheriff's Sales, a total of 32 homes across a five week span is not many at all compared to past years.

 

What does this mean to you as a Warren County home seller?

We have no reason to change past advice:  if you're motivated to sell, the distressed home inventory is negligible.  While inventory has increased some, it's still not enough to meet overall demand.   Many areas of Warren County still have a scarcity of the best homes for sale.  Newer and/or updated homes have an edge in this market if they're priced and marketed properly.
 
Only rarely will foreclosures and short sales impact your ability to find a buyer.  Just call us to set an appointment if you'd like to know about the marketability and value of your home!

 

What does this mean to you as a Warren County home buyer?
You won't have a large selection if foreclosures and short sales are your preferred home target.  With just 60 for sale for the ENTIRE county, that selection gets small fast when you start adding must haves like location, garage spaces, price point, etc.  And if you want a prime community (e.g. Mason or Springboro in particular), you may find out there are almost no distressed homes for sale.

Be aware that you're competing with other buyers AND investors for these homes.  And investors are often CASH buyers, so your financing contingent offer may be less competitive to the sellers.  However, some foreclosed properties have an initial period reserved for owner/occupants before being opened up to investors, so don't miss that window of opportunity!
