Here’s my Albuquerque Foreclosure Report for October of 2010.
Are There Many Foreclosures in Albuquerque?
This graph illustrates the breakdown of October sales by type including regular sales, bank owned sales (foreclosures), short sales and HUD sales.
As you can see, distressed home sales, including bank owned homes (foreclosures), HUD home sales and short sales, made up a sizeable portion of all Albuquerque home sales in October. In fact, distressed home sales accounted for 28% of the closed sales in October.
Foreclosure Homes Have the Best Prices in Town
Foreclosure homes and HUD homes old for a lower price than regular sales and short sales. Regular sales averaged $119 per square foot, short sale homes averaged $95 per square foot and foreclosure homes averaged $81 per square foot.
HUD homes are foreclosure homes too, and at an average of $70 they sold for the lowest price per square foot. Unfortunately for
Albuquerque home buyers and investors, the number of HUD homes available is limited.
Foreclosure Homes Sell for Close to List Price
I understand the today’s buyers want to get great deals, but the truth is that lowball offers to not work. That’s because Albuquerque
home prices have already come down off their peaks and foreclosure homes are already priced below fair market value. All four types of houses sold for very close to the list price:
Albuquerque foreclosure homes are a good way to get a good deal on a home, but if you really want to get the house you should resist writing lowball offers. They just don’t work.
Some neighborhoods have had more foreclosure activity than others. In general, the west side has been hit the hardest, view these
