Warren County Ohio Foreclosure Update: Sheriff's Sales through 08/24/2015
We're in the peak selling season for Warren County Ohio. School bells will be ringing before we know it and that usually starts a bit of a slow down. The good news for the overall market is the number of distressed properties are dropping. The percentage of the market and the raw number involved in foreclosures are declining and short sales needed are less than they used to be because the overall market values are pushing up.

We'll start with the trend chart of Sheriff's Sales scheduled with this revision including TWO additional weeks of sales and one week 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).

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:
As you can see, the percentage of distressed properties on the market continues to drop, both for percentage of sold and for percentage available for sale. Not great if you ONLY want that type of home, but good for everyone else.
For the most recent foreclosures scheduled, a fair number are tax lien related.
What does this mean to you as a Warren County home seller?
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 39 (down 10 from last month) for sale for the ENTIRE county, it's VERY slim pickings.
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!
