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

by Calculated Risk on 1/26/2015 05:05:00 PM

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

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

Short sales are down in these areas (except Sacramento).

Foreclosures are up in a few areas (working through the logjam, mostly in judicial states - especially in Florida).

The All Cash Share (last two columns) is mostly declining year-over-year.
