Notice of Defaults soar 128% in Nevada

From the Las Vegas Review Journal:

Notice of Defaults Soar in Nevada

Lenders filed 1,037 notices of default to start foreclosure proceedings in July, up 128 percent from July 2013, RealtyTrac reported. It’s also the highest number of starts since October, when the state’s Homeowners Bill of Rights took effect and put new restrictions on banks looking to foreclose. Monthly foreclosure starts had ranged from 284 to 708 in the first half of 2014 as banks adjusted to the regulations.

Is this a reason to panic if you are a homeowner concerned about their equity? Probably not when you look at the real numbers of bank owned homes that are actually available for sale on the Las Vegas MLS. Should a Las Vegas real estate buyer wait…

Desert Shores Home Values - Northwest Las Vegas Real Estate Trends

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014 at 11:08am. 1748 Views, 0 Comments.

Desert Shores Home Values

Desert Shores Homes in Northwest Las VegasA Master planned community in Northwest Las Vegas planned in the 1980's, Desert Shores has always been one of those communities that can be a challenge for novice real estate buyers and even Las Vegas Real Estate agents in properly determining a home's market value. Third party Non Realtor sites that do automatic online evaluations are normally completely way off wrong about a home's estimated market value in Desert Shores.

Some of the Reasons for this:

Homes with Lake Frontage. These obviously have a premium built into the price for one of a kind real estate in Las Vegas and can really throw off the numbers if they are included in home value evaluations.

Inexperienced real estate agents that list homes for sale in neighboring…

Shadow Inventory for the Nation drops to the lowest levels seen since August 2008

The dreaded "shadow inventory" numbers that have have been the big "what if" factor when deciding if it's the right time to purchase a home continues to drop and is now at the lowest levels seen since August of 2008 according to Corelogic.

Residential shadow inventory, as of October 2013, was 1.7 million homes, a supply of 3.5 months, down 43 percent from its peak of 3 million in January 2010. This figure represents a 24 percent drop from October 2012, when it stood at 2.3 million homes.

Interesting Trends Taking Shape for Las Vegas Homes Available for Sale

More legislation, more confusion for the Nevada Real Estate market and you can read a summary of the New Nevada Homeowner's Bill of Rights that just took effect today and form your own opinion HERE.

Also worth noting is that lenders rushed to file defaults in Clark County the day before the new law took effect that you can read HERE.

Just one day before a law kicked in making it easier to avoid foreclosure, banks unleashed a torrent of filings to seize homes from delinquent Las Vegas borrowers. A total of 934 notices of default were filed Monday in Clark County, the largest one-day total ever for the region, according to LV Default, a Las Vegas research firm.

Buyers Are Back After Going Through Foreclosure

Buyers are Back after Foreclosure

From the Wall Street Journal: Buyers Are Back After Foreclosure

Using the three-year benchmark it takes to get an FHA-guaranteed loan, in this year's second quarter there were 729,000 households that were foreclosed upon during the bust that are now eligible to apply for an FHA mortgage, up from 285,000 in the second quarter of 2011, according to an analysis of foreclosure data by Moody's Analytics. The company projects that number will grow to 1.5 million by the first quarter of 2014.

One thing that many people fail to factor in when it comes to the fears of the banks "dumping" the so called Shadow Inventory on to the Las Vegas real estate market and sinking prices is the amount of people that are now qualified to buy again.…

Nevada Ranks Second in Percentage of Homeowners 90+ days late on their Mortgages

Wednesday, October 17th, 2012 at 2:57pm. 2806 Views, 1 Comments.

Corelogic® Releases August 2012 Stats

Corelogic® recently released their October Market Pulse report that included a chart showing the % of home loans out there that are 90+ days late. While it was no surprise that Nevada was in the top 10, what was a surprise were the number of states that you rarely hear about when it comes to the number of foreclosure notice filings.

Also a big surprise is that Arizona has dropped off of the top 25 list for the percentage of delinquent home loans 90+ days late. It didn't seem like it was too long ago that Arizona was competing with Nevada for the top spots in the number of foreclosure filings reported. Arizona took the path of dealing with distressed homeowners head on and not delaying out the foreclosure process…
