Some thoughts on the metrics of the March 2019 Lee County Florida foreclosure report.

  • 10 of the foreclosure filings appear to be a result of the Bertram Versus US bank decision due to the date of the last payment.
  • The lack of Certificate of Title Growth in relation to the Lis Pendens filings shows that the market has improved to the point if you go into default. You can trade out.
  • If the market is correcting, the distressed market will not be the primary driver.
  • The current filings appear to be the following factors.
    • Old Modifications that are now going bad. (2005-2007)
    • New Low money down builder transactions. (2016-2018)
    • “Normal” Distressed Situations.
    • Probates where a mortgage was involved. (Primarily the 2005-2007 Vintage)
