Third Quarter Report Reveals Vastly Different Foreclosure Market

The Q3 2014 Foreclosure Report issued by MIBOR reveals that foreclosed homes made up only 8.9 percent of all central Indiana closed sales in the 3rd quarter of 2014. This is down from the 15.1 percent market share in the same quarter of 2013 and 20.9 percent in 2012. Foreclosure listings dropped as well, now representing 7.8 percent of all listings in the third quarter. The majority of foreclosure inventory continues to hover in the $120,000 and below price range.

The median foreclosure sales price was up 12.5 percent to $74,450. In third quarter, foreclosures yielded an average of 88.9 percent of list price while traditional sales yielded 93.6 percent.
