The Great Foreclosure Crisis has long since passed. Still, due to the dynamic nature of our real estate market the state of Florida will undoubtedly continue to lead the nation in the the number of foreclosures.
Any listings for foreclosures (REO bank owned homes), short sales and other distressed properties can be found through hitting the buttons on this page.
From this point further there will simply be a lot less of them. And those that do come onto the market will be jumped upon. If you are interested in this segment of the housing market, check back often and be prepared to move quickly.
You'll find our "Hot Buttons" below to be an invaluable resource. These are the most recent Listings for Distressed Property (either REO or Shorts) to appear on the MLS. If you are looking for foreclosures or short sales check back every day or so.
Below are Links to websites where Banks and Lenders List their REO Properties. You may see Real Estate Agents Listed for Contact Information. These are not "Listing Agents" in the traditional sense. They receive a small Commission from the Bank for filling out paperwork, putting a Lock Box on the property. They do not show the property. In most cases they don't even negotiate Offers, which are submitted over the Internet. As a result, these Agents often care little about individual deals, seldom return messages, are non-responsive to a Buyer's questions and concerns. If you are interested in Foreclosures you would be well-advised to find a Real Estate Agent who will represent your interests in these transactions. Me, for instance.
