Tallahassee Monthly Lis Pendens Filings June 2012

New lis pendens filings in Tallahassee rose 50% in June when compared to June 2011, and foreclosures jumped 54%. We are definitely seeing a huge increase in these distressed properties, as the lis pendens filings trend has been on the rise for eight months now, which I believe is evidence of growth in future foreclosure sales. Currently, the foreclosure sale to Lis Pendens filings ratio has dropped from an all time high ten months ago to 42%, as we can see with the blue line in the foreclosure graph below.

Tallahassee Home Prices Are On The Rise Yet Owners Are Losing Equity

Yes, Tallahassee home prices are on the rise, and no there is not a typo in the title of this article.

Many people do not realize that Tallahassee home prices and Tallahassee home values are two very different measurements.

Think of it this way.

When a report references average home prices (lately we have seen number NAR reports saying home prices are on the rise), this is simply a measurement of the average or median home price during a certain period of time.

If ten houses sell for $1.5M,...

Homes Zoned For Chiles High School

I saw this question about homes zoned for Chiles High School on a forum the other day, and before I could answer it, another forum member pointed them to the Tallahassee Real Estate Website. How cool is that!

Apparently, some people think Chiles is the best high school in town, but I can tell you as a true red-blooded Leon High School grad, there are those of us with different opinions! My daughter now, and my sons later, are Leon Lions.

But back to the forum question, the reader was looking for homes zoned for Chiles High School and wrote:


How Swimming Pools Affect Home Valuations

If you have ever wondered how swimming pools affect home values, then you will most likely enjoy this post.

Every so often, I like to analyze the effect of swimming pools on home sales, home prices, and home values.

As we continue to sell homes in Tallahassee during the heart of the Summer swimming season, could there be a better time to look at homes with cool, refreshing pools? I think not :).

Keeping A Watchful Eye On Home Sales In Hampton Creek

Hampton Creek is another Tallahassee neighborhood that was born during the boom of the housing market, thus we expect a growing mass of frustrated home sellers to be entering the market over the next five years.

Boom neighborhoods (neighborhoods in Tallahassee that commenced sales from 2000 to 2006) are more susceptible to problems due to the number of homeowners whose move cycle will hit at the same time, and Hampton Creek certainly fits this definition.

Historically, the average...

Homeowner, You're Doing A Short Sale And You Don't Even Know It!

The clock is ticking for home sellers, and many of you are going to be doing a short sale even though "that thought" is the furthest thing from your mind right now.

You're hoping you can sell your home for enough money to cover the debt, or you're hoping that "one special buyer" will come along and save the day.

You continue to sit idly by as the housing market moves further from your asking price, serving in the role of set-up house for the properly priced home sellers down the street.

I see it all the time, and I hope that this article can be a wake-up call for people who ...

Falling Tallahassee Home Values Force Sellers Hand

Tallahassee home values continue to fall, and the window is closing for sellers who hoped to take advantage of the Summer selling season.

Historically, the surge of home sales that occurs prior to the launch of a new school year slows when it is no longer possible to buy a home and move in before the start of the school year. It is just prior to that point that we typically see sellers get their highest Tallahassee home values.

Using a little backwards planning, that magic date this year should occur near the end of June. Most people want to be in at least 1 week prior to the ...
