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

by Calculated Risk on 6/18/2014 06:51:00 PM

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

Lawler notes that Orlando is one of a few markets in Florida where foreclosure share of sales up a decent amount from year ago.

On distressed: Total "distressed" share is down in all of these markets, mostly because of a sharp decline in short sales.

Short sales are down in all of these areas.

Foreclosures are down in most of these areas too, although foreclosures are up a little in a couple of 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.
