April 2019 Lee County Florida foreclosure report: Some parting thoughts.

  • Essentially April is more of the same in relation to the trend.
  • 4 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.
