We haven’t touched on Foreclosures lately. Here’s the lates’t scoop. Ventura County foreclosure filings continue to be delayed as lenders sort through the maze of documents, government regulations, and other legal issues that have plagued them for years now. County wide Foreclosure filings are down 18.86 % from this time last year and notice of sales are down over 18%. Does this mean that this worst is behind us ? I don’t think so. Many lenders simply can’t process filings fast enough to keep up with the flood of paperwork. With some many foreclosures being delayed or canceled many investors have moved to the short sale market to find good deals. Increasingly we are seeing investors coming in with all cash to purchase properties via short sale.
