There’s A Major “Caveat” with the numbers below! Based on a 13% REO sold rate, which does appear to be an indication REOs are negatively impacting this market. It’s also stated here that an article (The Landmines Within by Michael Tarabotto http://activerain.com/blogsview/930436/The-Landmines-Within ) stated that as much as 70% of REOs never make it into the MLS – Meaning that it might be impossible to know or state the exact # of competing REOs if they’re not being listed and that the foreclosure problem could be larger if up to 70% of REOs aren’t being listed. MLS is reporting 71 current REO listings for all Livingston MLS Areas out of a total 962 total listings. So, 7% of all Livingston MLS Listings are Fore closures!
