  • November 2019 is more of the same in relation to the foreclosure trend.
  • 6 of the foreclosure filings appear to be a result of the Bertram Versus US bank decision due to the date of the last payment. That explains the increase from last month.
  • 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.
  • The institutional distressed market will continue to not be a primary driver.
  • Most of the foreclosures appear to be smaller loan amounts. There is significant demand within those price points.
  • Appreciation has slowed down since 2016. This is why the vintage of 2016 through 2018 has as many foreclosures. They can not trade out unless they had a larger down payment.
