By keeping an eye on the number of lis pendens being filed each month in Tallahassee, we will get a feel for the inevitable onslaught of distressed properties that will be for sale in the coming months (years). While we have covered this point in the past, I think it is time to take another look at where we stand.
The Tallahassee Foreclosure Web Page is current through mid-year, and July's report will be filed in the next week or so. This updated Tallahasssee distressed property site shows that lis pendens filings were up 34% in the second quarter of 2009 versus the second quarter of 2008. Even more disturbing, January through June of 2009 Lis Pendens filings were up 47% compared to same period in 2008.
Top Tallahassee Subdivisions By Lis Pendens Filed
For those of you who like to keep an eye on certain Tallahassee neighborhoods, the following real estate graph and chart show which subdivisions have the most lis pendens filed over the past year. Leading the way is Southwood, which sports over 3% of all lis pendens filed in the Tallahassee real estate market.
Lis Pendens Filed By Tallahassee Subdivision
The following real estate chart shows the most active neighborhoods in Tallahassee based upon lis pendens filings. Some of these make sense because they parallel the recent sales activity, yet others are significantly more active in distressed properties than they were in sales.
If you happen to live in a Tallahassee neighborhood that has "more than its fair share" of lis pendens, plan on hunkering down for a while, as your home values will be dropping faster than the rest of the Tallahassee housing market.
