Foreclosures and short sales
in the Twin Cities Housing
Q3 2009 Update
A Special Research Report from the Minneapolis Area Association of REALTORS
Lender-owned foreclosure inventory available for sale in theTwin Cities has fallen by 60 percent in the last year, fallingfrom an estimated 4,886 at the end of last September to1,960 this year. Short sales are a different story—basicallyholding steady over the last twelve months (Figure 1).Lender-owned foreclosures now account for only 7.9percent of the total inventory, while short sales represent17.4 percent of total inventory.The simple reason for this growing chasm is thatforeclosures are selling roughly three times as frequentlyas short sales (Figure 2). Short sales are complicatedtransactions and many consumers have reportedconsiderable delays and uncertainties associated withmaking an offer on a short sale home. These complicationsare likely the main cause of the relatively quiet sales activity.
Foreclosures are properties in which the fnancial
institution has repossessed the home from the owner dueto nonpayment of mortgage obligations. Short sales are
unique arrangements where the fnancial institution and in-
default homeowner work together in an attempt to sell thehome before it is foreclosed upon.It’s encouraging to see the number of vacant foreclosuresdrop as they’re absorbed by new homeowners. Butit’s discouraging to see that short sales remain such asubstantial drag on the market’s forward momentum,especially when we consider that a portion of these shortsales will eventually become lender-owned foreclosures.For more information on the difference between theforeclosure market and the short sale market, take a look atpages 5 to 7 of this report.
