Another Good Week for Palm Beach County Foreclosure Auctions

Foreclosure Auctions In Palm Beach County Up This Week

As we have reported over the past 6 weeks, we have seen a significant decrease in the number of foreclosures in Palm Beach County. This week, while the numbers were up significantly, they still remain in the lower range of we have been experiencing. Still hoping this is a trend that we will see continue but it could be a side effect of the robo-signing scandal that has received so much press. Watching numbers in the coming weeks will be very, very interesting.

The chart above represents the actual 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 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 to 233 units from 145 the previous week but still low for what we had been seeing over the past months.

Third party bidders still saw success in over 10% of auctions but did not participate in all. On of the slowest days on the calendar this week was Tuesday when only 12 properties were on the block, but there were some big ones that day. That is if you consider a final judgement of $35,017,625 big. The Plaintiff announced prior to the auction that they would not bid higher than $17,700,000 willing to walk away from about 50% of their investment. Still not enough to interest any outside suitors as the auction ended after the initial $100 bid.

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… 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 You can always pay more and receive less but that just would not make any sense. Would it?
