Lawler: Updated Table of Distressed Sales and Cash buyers for Selected Cities in July

by Bill McBride on 8/26/2015 03:01:00 PM

Economist Tom Lawler sent me an updated table below of short sales, foreclosures and cash buyers for selected cities in July.

On distressed: Total "distressed" share is down in most of these markets.  Distressed sales are up in the Mid-Atlantic due to an increase in foreclosures.

Short sales are down in all of these areas.

The All Cash Share (last two columns) is declining year-over-year. As investors pull back, the share of all cash buyers will probably continue to decline.
