Lawler: Preliminary Table of Distressed Sales and All Cash Sales for Selected Cities in October

by Bill McBride on 11/19/2015 01:01:00 PM

Economist Tom Lawler sent me a preliminary table below of short sales, foreclosures and all cash sales for a few selected cities in October.

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 mostly declining year-over-year. As investors pull back, the share of all cash buyers will probably continue to decline.
