Welcome to our Q & A Saturday video.

Today’s question is “What is going on with Massachusetts Foreclosures?

Bank Owned Foreclosed Home - Massachusetts Foreclosure Activity Rising

In this video Shaun talks about the continuing upward trends in MA foreclosures and what that means for the real estate market.


Some of the main points covered in this video are:

1)      The 2 year long steady increase in foreclosure petitions

2)      What that means for completed foreclosures

3)      The pattern of increasing completed foreclosures

4)      Where to find out where you can keep up on these numbers (Hint it is right here!)


Foreclosure activity is a good leading indicator or where the real estate market is going to go.  The more bank foreclosure properties on the market the inventory there will be (and that inventory is often at lower prices) which puts downward pressure on the local real estate market.  Massachusetts has seen a long steady rise in foreclosure petitions (the 1st step in the foreclosure process) and now is seeing the corresponding steady increase in completed foreclosures as they work their way thought the system.  Nobody can say when this will start to impact the market (though if you need our frequently Market Trend Reports you will see many instances where the market is not as strong as you might be lead to believe), but at some point if more and more REOs flood the market things will fall off.
