Palm Beach County On Line Foreclosure Auctions Total 12,304

2010; what a year it was when it came to foreclosure auctions in Palm Beach County. We started with the County Clerk taking the auctions on line the first week of February and with today’s final auctions of the year successfully sold a total of 12,304 properties on line.

After last week, when we saw the lowest foreclosure numbers in Palm Beach County for the year, we did see considerably more action but then we did have 4 auction days compared to only 3 last week. With all of the holiday interruptions it will be nice to get back to a full schedule of auctions and see if in fact things are leveling off. We do not have another missed day until February 21st so we have seven straight weeks with 5 auction days scheduled and we will be watching them very closely.

The chart above represents the advertised foreclosure sales for each week over the past six month period. We do have historical numbers going back since on-line auctions began so if anyone wants that information please contact me at your convenience. Please note that the numbers shown represent the total advertised sales for that week but are not broken down into sales that were sold to the Plaintiff or sold to a third party. This week, the actual foreclosure auction numbers increased significantly to 160 units from 109 the previous week.

Third party bidders continued to see much success this week as 16 of the 160 auctions going their way and at 10% this is a very high number. Watch for an upcoming blog where we look deeper into the recent success of third party bidders. These foreclosures represent some of the best opportunities for buyer’s in today’s market. If you would like to learn how to find one that meets your needs perfectly please give me a call at your convenience.

After spending years among the top individual performers at one of Palm Beach County’s largest and most successful real estate brokerages, Tom Priester knew there was another way to do real estate. A better way. Real estate services focused on the customer. Like the old days when the customer truly was #1. He tired of listening to why he should be going out to have his customers sign one sided buyers’ brokerage agreements. He tired of hearing how he should be selling customers why paying higher commissions, like 7% and 8%, was to their benefit. He tired of hearing how he should sell his clients on why they should be paying hundreds of dollars in additional “transaction fees”. The business had slid way too far from being focused on the customer. His customer. So he decided the time was right to be different…..by design. To start his own unique boutique real estate firm truly focused on his customers. They will now have access to a process focused on them. Only the best marketing techniques to sell their homes. No cutting corners. Commission structures based on his clients needs not his. Paradise Sharks was born out of Tom’s passion to return this business to the customer. Where it belongs. If you want a real estate experience that benefits you, just give Tom a call at 561 308-0175 or send him an e-mail at tom@paradisesharks.com. You can always pay more and receive less but that just would not make any sense. Would it?
