  Warren County Ohio Foreclosure information

Summary of Warren County Ohio Foreclosure and Short Sale Information:

We're still doing the up and down pattern, but another thing to take into account, there are even fewer auctions!  Lately there are more weeks withing auctions than ones with auctions, and that's above holiday weeks off.  Overall, the impact of foreclosures and short sales on the Warren County market continue to dwindle.

Short sales are dropping also as the need for them decreases with the recovering market.  Homeowners lacking equity before now have equity. 

Of course buyers/investors are still looking for deals, but they're going to have to look harder to find those deals that justify a flip!  Those bargains often need lots of work though, as being empty for an extended period of time is REALLY bad for a home.  Getting them sold and someone in them ASAP is a good thing for the home and the neighborhoods. 

More homeowners are avoiding foreclosure and that's REALLY good for the overall housing market, even if it might disappoint some home buyers seeking bargains.  

And when you look at Table 1, it's obvious the overall market continues to improve.

 
What does this mean to you as a Warren County home seller?
We have no reason to change our assessment from past months:  it's a good time to be a home seller after years of the market not supporting you.  You still need to price right, hire the right real estate team (hand raised and volunteering our services), and make your home easily available to the buyers.  But the past where foreclosures and short sales were driving your decision?  You're pretty much past that point.  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?
No reason to change from last month:  your selection of foreclosures and short sales is small.  If you find a prime deal, you better move fast because you'll have competition.  However, fact is if your shopping is limited to ONLY distressed properties, you're probably going to be disappointed with the limited selection.  And if you want a prime community (e.g. Mason, you may find out there are almost no homes to see if you factor in other needs like price and number of bedrooms). 

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!
