The housing bust hangover continues to linger over South Florida. Cumulative home prices are expected to decline between 6 to 8% for the next 7 to 8 months and perhaps bottoming out towards the end of 2011.
A main culprit behind the housing market’s continued struggles involves all of the recent scandals that have plagued our real estate market.
For instance, allegations of robo signing, fraud, documentation errors, issues with process servers, problems servicing loan modifications, and other similar issues, have prompted many lenders to slow down the foreclosure process which in turn has slowed down the housing recovery.
The slow down in the housing recovery ultimately means that the real estate market won’t make a full recovery for at least another year. The reason being is that the slowdown of foreclosures has pushed out the time frame when the real estate market would have gotten through the critical mass of foreclosures that would have led to stabilization. As a result of all these foreclosure related problems, that time frame for a recovery has now been pushed back probably at least another year.
Today’s current real estate market, and ongoing foreclosure crises, presents all sorts of issues that must be properly navigated. There are many factors contributing to Florida’s nation leading delinquency rates. They include a weak job market, weak economic recovery, and a major drop in home prices. Consequently, Florida’s housing market remains unsettled in large part due to the continued foreclosure crises.
