Good News Continues for Palm Beach County Foreclosure Numbers


Foreclosure “Slowdown” Hits 8 Weeks in Palm Beach County

Week after week, report after report, it is starting to be expected that foreclosures in Palm Beach County will remain far below levels that we had been experiencing. Obviously the level of foreclosures that we have experienced over the past few years is the primary reason prices are down and future foreclosures will also be a major metric in home prices as we move forward.

What we do know is numbers are down; way down from where they were just a couple months ago. We also know the “robo-signing” issues experienced earlier in the year caused a hold on the foreclosure process for many properties in Palm Beach County. What we do not know is how much effect does one have to do with the other.






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 231 units from 179 the previous week but still in line with the lower numbers we have been seeing.

Third party bidders saw another successful week with over 10% of auctions ending in their favor. We continue to keep our eyes on these numbers as it is clear banks are happy to let some of their headaches go at this level to investors and not having to go the REO route.

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?
