The Campbell survey broke REOs down into damaged and move-in ready. Distressed sales also include short sales.

Mark Hanson has pointed out that "organic" sales (non-distressed) have a seasonal pattern, and that distressed sales are basically steady all year. This new monthly data from Campbell Surveys should show that change in mix over the next few months.
