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:

Now that the overall market activity is back to a more normal level in regards to overall homes sold and under contract, we're back to significantly less impact of distressed properties on the overall market.  Back under 10% for overall sold homes and a further decrease in the percentage of homes for sale.  Overall, this is very good for the local real estate market.

As far as homes being foreclosed, those numbers are staying fairly low, but the 23 scheduled for the week of May 4th is one of the higher totals we've seen in a few months.

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 under 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!
