Tallahassee Foreclosures Second Quarter 2010
New lis pendens filings in Tallahassee dropped 52% in June when compared to June 2009, and but foreclosures went up nearly 200%. This indicates that banks are more willing to proceed on mortgage foreclosures than they have been in the past, but it also might be a signal that distressed properties and mortgage defaults might be finally starting to slow. Currently, the foreclosure sale to Lis Pendens filings ratio is at an all time high of 37%.

When we look at year to date sales of condominiums and townhouses in the Tallahassee real estate market, we get a feeling that things are nearly “back to normal.”
After all, unit sales appear to be at pre-boom levels, so why shouldn’t we rejoice in a market segment that is posting the same number of sales as was recorded in the past?
Attached Housing Is A Value Issue
The fact is...
Florida real estate law will see modifications effective July 1, 2010, as many of the 274 new laws passed during the 2010 legislative session take effect at the start of the new fiscal year. Of these many new laws, two (2) will have an impact on how the Tallahassee real estate market is regulated.
Short Sales Get Partial Doc Stamp Relief

You need to decide if you are looking for a student condo (condo and townhouse will be used interchangeably for the purpose of this report), a downtown Tallahassee Condo, or if you are just looking for great affordable living space.

As I was assembling the Tallahassee Real Estate Newsletter this morning, I found an interesting comparison between lot values in Tallahassee and mobile home values. Over the past 20 years, these two market components have run a very similar course, but all of that changed during the real estate boom several years ago.
When the housing market went crazy, mobile home values went higher as well, though not proportionately the same as homes and land values. The same seems to be true as the market recovers. Mobile home values continue to fall, just like the rest of the real estate market in Leon County, though not as dramatically as everything else.
We are seeing a normalization...
We are fortunate that the BP oil spill has not yet hit Tallahassee (not the economic effects). Last week I wrote a quick article from Cape San Blas, Florida while my family and I spent two days there. I noted that I had never seen the beach look better and there was absolutely no oil on the beach at Cape San Blas.
Since that article, I have received numerous emails and comments from readers who apparently live in other parts of the country (and world) and would like updates on BP oil spill and how much it is affecting the beaches. Additionally, I've had a few questions asking if the oil spill has reached Tallahassee.
