Deals On Homes For Sale In Gatlinburg Could Be Slowing

Discounted mountain homes could soon become a rarity.  An article in USA todayindicates that the number of homes getting some kind of  foreclosure notice fell from January to February 2011.  In this real estate story out of Los Angeles, author Alex Veiga says, foreclosure notices are at a 36 month low.  Our recent February’s numbers are 15% lower than this January and February 2011 vs February 2010 is 27% less.  Much of the background data for the story was supplied by foreclosure listing company Realty Trac.  Before everyone gets ready to celebrate an end to the large foreclosure mess, consider this.  In most of the nation we had a severe winter.  The inclement weather gets some credit for aiding the decline. However, the primary reason for the current decrease in foreclosures is state and federal investigations which began last fall.  This intervention became serious when evidence appeared to show that some banks railroaded through loads of foreclosures each day, without giving the borrowers a fair chance to keep their homes.  As Congress and State legislatures got involved, the banking industry and other home lenders in effect froze the foreclosure process.  All of these currently stalled delinquent homes, will eventually enter the foreclosure pipeline.  However, that could take some time.
