Phoenix Foreclosures Snapshot - November 2009

Phoenix foreclosures comprise 30.8% of all real estate listings in the metropolitan area. Foreclosure listings are comprised of REO property (bank owned) and short sales. REO property used to be the majority of active listings in the foreclosure arena. However, bank owned properties have been on a decline for most of 2009. They are being replaced by short sales because more distressed homeowners are seeing short sales as a better alternative to foreclosure. image depicting make up of Phoenix foreclosures in November 2009The chart indicates 12,539 foreclosure listings in the Phoenix real estate market to begin November 2009. Since there are 32,351 total listings in the Phoenix market (seen in my last post), foreclosure listings make up almost 39% of all listings in the area. Of that 39%, 35.2% (4,417) are REO listings and 64.8% (8,122) are short sales. There are several reasons for the decline in REO property listings over the last year:
  • the federally mandated foreclosure moratorium
  • banks for selling more properties in bulk to large-scale investors
  • banks are taking chunks of foreclosure properties and turning them into rentals
  • more properties are being sold at public-type auctions
Homeowners are increasingly seeing short sales as a viable alternative to foreclosure. Although the short sale process can take between three and five months to complete, buyers in the Phoenix area real estate market are paying much more attention to short sales. The percentage of completed short sale transactions continues to grow each month in the Phoenix area.

Days on Market for Phoenix Foreclosures

image of Phoenix area real estate statisticsForeclosure listings have been on the market for an average of 80 days less than their counterparts -- "normal" listings -- during 2009. The second chart indicates that current foreclosure-type listings have been on the market for 105 days, while normal listings have been on the market for 182 days. The obvious reason is the difference in price between two categories of listings. REO property and short sales are always priced much lower than normal sales making them much more attractive to home buyers.

It can also be seen by the chart that overall days on the market has been steadily trending downwards for Phoenix area foreclosures. However, if we were to isolate REO properties we would find that the average sold home would be on the market for less than 60 days. The longer selling cycle for short sales is what keeps the foreclosure "days on the market" higher. Short sale your home
