Most Expensive Short Sales and Foreclosures Sold on 30A & Destin for 2010

There were 129 homes that sold for over $1mil in 2010 of which 22 were either a short sale or Foreclosure. Some of these properties were amazing buys and we will look at the 5 most expensive short sales and foreclosures sold in 2010 on 30A and Destin. In 2009 Scenic 30A made the top 3 list of most expensive distressed homes sold, however in 2010 Destin and Miramar Beach captured 4 of the 5 top spots. Also of interest is that all 5 of the most expensive homes sold are short sales.

See Team Baranowski’s Newsletter Review of the Most Expensive Properties Sold in 2010

There was a significant amount of premium inventory moved in 2010 and we expect a shortage of great buys as our inventory levels are down from 14,000 units in 2006 to 7,800 units in 2010! This is 44% decrease in available inventory. Once we have less than 12 months of available inventory…which we are very close…we will see a market shift from a buyer’s market to a seller’s market.

Most of the premium distressed property sold under multiple offer scenarios and with some selling well over offer price. For example, a WaterSound Condo foreclosure had 8 offers in 24 hours and sold for $256,000 above the offer price of $849,900.

If you are looking to buy a premium distressed property now is the time to buy as the inventory is going quick!

Flipping Foreclosures on 30A, Destin and Panama City Beach

Flipping Foreclosures Good for 30A and Destin?

Buyers and investors have been snatching up some excellent buys on Scenic 30A, Destin and Panama City Beach. Many premium distressed properties have been sold at ridiculously low prices. Is now to time to start flipping foreclosures and what is the sweet spot for flipping foreclosures? Are flipping foreclosures good for our market recovery?

The thought of foreclosure flipping makes me cringe as I remember back to the outrageous flipping during 2004 and 2005 that ultimately brought our market down to its knees. Some 6 years later we are still trying to recover from a glut of investors with little to no end users driving our real estate prices into the stratosphere only to come crashing down.

What is different today than in 2004 and 2005? We have a healthy mix of buyers and investors. Buyers today are primarily end users looking to hold property for 10 to 15 years. Back during the real estate boom our core set of second home buyers were driven out of the market by unrealistic real estate prices. Properties that were over-valued to the point where they would never cash flow with rental income created a disaster compounded by loose lending practices allowing unqualified buyers to get upside down financially. What was once a $1.2mil overpriced cottage in Seacrest Beach is now a $450K gem that will generate over $45K in rental income and wonderful second home for a family.

Foreclosure Flippers and investors are needed for market recovery

Investors are mostly cash buyers and are buying at ultra-low prices sometimes in bulk quantities. I consider many of the investors as “street sweepers” as they snatch up both good and not so good properties. They purchase properties in bulk from financial institutions or other investments groups and release the product at fair market value. As an example, the Redfish Developer units being released back to the market this April. These investors took over priced unsellable inventory, purchased it in bulk and are now releasing back into the market at fair market price with buyer incentives. In the case of Redfish Village they are offering 2 1/2 years of no HOA assessments. This investor will single handedly turn Redfish Village into a booming town that it was designed to be. We will have end users, empty condos will be full, the HOA will be stabalize, rental income will rise and the small businesses in Redfish Village will prosper. This is fantastic for our community!

In other situations foreclosure flippers will buy the ugly stuff that no one wants to touch, the properties will be refreshed, repainted, repaired, landscaped and sold. The flippers are oftentimes taking the neighborhood’s blight and turning it into a gem. Abandoned developments that look like “pipe farms” overgrown with weeds and swamps for pools will have new life and will once again be a showcase of our beautiful area and something we can all be proud of. We love investors!

If you are an investor and looking for some great buys, give us a call. Team Baranowski are Certified Investor Specialists and we are here to help.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac Resume Bank Owned Property Sales

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac put a large number of their foreclosures on hold in September 2010  when it was revealed that fraudulent court documents may have been used to repossess homes and other properties. Team Baranowski had a few contracts on a Fannie Mae bank owned property and only one files was deemed "infected" and was taken off the market and put on an indefinite hold. This is an awesome property and we hope to see it back on the market shortly!

This week Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac given the nod to restart the sales of their foreclosed properties. Brokers received memos Wednesday from the government-sponsored enterprises saying that the homes could once again be marketed and sales finalized on properties already under contract. Fannie Mae’s letter explains that evictions and lockouts are still suspended on its properties.

This is great news for our area as mortgage delinquencies continue to rise and we cannot afford to have anymore delays on foreclosures. Delays in foreclosures creates an unhealthy imbalance of distressed properties in our area and brings more unpredictability to the real estate market. About 12 percent of Fannie Mae loans in Florida are delinquent, while Freddie Mac has 17 percent of its Florida mortgages in arrears.

The embargo on selling foreclosed properties likely added to last month’s slump of existing home sales, which dropped 12 percent in Florida compared to September and 21 percent compared to October 2009.

Fannie Mae Home Path Condo foreclosures continue to be at the top of my HOT BUY list as the financing terms and flexibility for buyers and investors is amazing.

Foreclosure Wave or Foreclosure Roller Coaster?

Foreclosure proceedings slow in Santa Rosa Beach and Miramar Beach

There is a massive change between the foreclosure calender in Walton County in September 2010 and October and November 2010. The third quarter of 2010 saw foreclosures finally running through like a well oiled machine. There were consistently a full docket of foreclosures daily in Walton County. In reviewing the foreclosure calendar today you will see a calender with only a few foreclosures or a full docket of foreclosure proceedings, with almost half will read "Canceled per Order". Yesterday, November 3rd, there were 7 foreclosures scheduled and 3 were canceled.\

Walton County which comprises of the popular Santa Rosa Beach, Miramar Beach, Sandestin, and Scenic 30A areas make up the bulk of the foreclosures in the county. Walton County is not the only area in Florida experiencing foreclosure delays. Other counties such as Broward County are seeing up to a 75% reduction in foreclosure proceedings. Experts expect the delay to end in about 10 weeks and then the next wave of foreclosures will be coming through at full force.

Here is a great link to an article about foreclosure delays in Florida.

Foreclosure proceedings downshift

Foreclosure Freeze a Stealth Stimulus?

Foreclosure delays providing billions in stimulus

After the mid-term elections it is crystal clear that America are a touch frustrated with our national debt and the amount of money we are spending. Another bailout or stimulus would not be the best plan of action at the present moment. But what most people do not know is that we are having a stealth stimulus right now…in fact we have had a stealth stimulus for almost two years.

The delays in the foreclosure process are giving a "stealth stimulus" to defaulting home owners who continue to live – or even rent out – their homes. Running simple math one can quickly see how massive this stimulus can be. If your mortgage is $3,000 per month and you receive an additional 3-4 months of foreclosure delay due to the foreclosure freeze that will equate to a $9,000 to $12,000 stimulus.

Analysis by the Wall Street Journal estimates the stealth stimulus is worth about $2.6 Billion per month or about 0.25 percent of U.S. personal income. Many defaulters are still looking to get a mortgage modification, however most are just using the money for daily necessities such as food, gas, etc.

It is certainly an interesting way to look at the entire foreclosure fiasco that we have all witnessed in the past 24 months.

Foreclosure Mill Ex-Employee Reports of Foreclosure Fraud

It sure does make excellent headlines…Foreclosure Fraud…Robo Signing…Foreclosure Mills…lies, scandals and corruption. Does it get any better than that? Now that the robo signing foreclosure scandal is at its peak ex-employees are coming out to throw more scandal into the mix. It appears the top foreclosure mill, The law office of David Stearn, had a pretty cozy relationship with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac according to this ex-employee. There was enough scandal to produce a 63-page statement disclosing foreclosure fraud by changing thousands of documents, hiding files from auditors and violating Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac's stringent policy about expenses being paid by one of their vendors.

Whether this ex-employee is right or wrong in his allegations it makes some interesting news and makes a good read. My personal opinion is that you will find mistakes and preferential treat to top customers at any company whether it be a law firm or corporate America. Look at politicians…they are about as corrupt as you can get and they are the ones that will be pointing the finger the most at the foreclosure scandal.

Here is the article to read about it: Ex-worker: Fla. law a ‘foreclosure mill’

Bank of America Resumes Foreclosures in 23 States including Florida

Just when foreclosures were getting hot in Destin, 30A and Panama City Beach, Bank of America and other major lenders did a foreclosure freeze due to faulty paperwork. The industry was calling it a national scandal and inked the term "Robo Signing". Two weeks later Bank of America reports that they are resuming foreclosures in 23 states including Florida. According to Bank of America they are not finding flaws in the paperwork of their 100,000 plus foreclosure cases they are beginning to resume.

The word on the street was that this foreclosure halt would be for 18 months and would devastate the real estate market. Foreclosures were hot…then they were not…will they be hot again? There are still a lot of issues that need to be worked out with foreclosures and the proper review of the immense paperwork associated with each foreclosure.

It was doom and gloom for the past two weeks while foreclosures were stopped in all 50 states with Bank of America, GMAC and JP Morgan Chase stopping foreclosures. We personally saw many properties get pulled off the market by Fannie Mae and a few Bank of America foreclosed properties. There was even title companies refusing to back Bank of America foreclosures with title insurance due to the massive liability exposure they could face if there was widespread foreclosure fraud.

News articles and blog posts were being written by the thousands of how the real estate market will crash and that short sales will  be the only avenue now to acquire distressed property. I am surprised that Bank of America re-started the foreclosure process so soon, but then if you realize the hundreds of thousands of foreclosures that need to get processed there it is impossible to stop the avalanche for any extended period of time.
