Warren County Ohio Foreclosure Update: Sheriff's Sales through 9/28/2015

Warren County Ohio Foreclosure Update: Sheriff's Sales through 9/28/2015

We're starting to feel Fall coming even though we're technically a long way from the "official" turning of the seasonal calendar.  A few cooler days mixed in and the real estate activity is starting to slow a bit too as all the school districts are back in session.  It's all typical for this time of year.  We actually had a slight uptick in foreclosures and short sales, and there's an extra kick to the number of scheduled foreclosures as 8 homes have the tax man coming for them if they don't catch up ASAP!

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 THREE additional weeks of sales and one week of no sales scheduled.   The ORANGE DIAGONAL line one the chart is the trend line and instead of having a slight decline as we have for the last year, we've moved very close to level.

Warren County Ohio Foreclosures

934 Kerns Drive Lebanon Ohio short sale home sold

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.   

Warren County Ohio Distressed Real estate sales

Warren County Ohio Foreclosure information

 

Summary of Warren County Ohio Foreclosure and Short Sale Information:

As you can see, the percentage of distressed properties on the market and sold both increased slightly from the previous month, but still in single digits.  Not great if you ONLY want that type of home, but good for the overall market stability.

For the three weeks of new auctions scheduled, 8 of the homes are tax lien related.

 

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

If you're motivated to sell, the distressed home inventory is negligible.  "Regular" inventory is down a bit, distressed homes up slightly.  Bottom line, there's not much standing in your way except the usual seasonal slow down.  Homes will STILL sell and foreclosures are not going to impact you.  (or less!).  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 51 (up 12 from last month) for sale for the ENTIRE county, it continues to be a challenge to find a foreclosure home.

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!
