Palm Beach County Foreclosure Auctions Pick Up Steam

Back to the normal work week schedule and as nice as all of the November and December holidays are I really enjoy this time of year. The Palm Beach County Clerk was busy this week recording the 6th highest weekly total of foreclosures over the past 6 months.

Since the five day schedule is a relatively new format it will be worthwhile to keep watching the actual foreclosure numbers as we move through the year. A relatively new phenomena is the success we have recently been seeing of third party bidders winning a much larger number of the auctions each week and that trend continued again this week. I keep promising a blog on the topic and it is coming; if I can just find the time!

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 for the third week in a row to 351 units from 322 the previous week.

As discussed above third party bidders continued to see much success this week as 34 of the 351 auctions going their way. Watch for my upcoming blog (it is coming I PROMISE) 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?
