Cape Coral Florida: Foreclosures, Short Sales & Bank Owned Homes

Why are there so many foreclosures in Cape Coral and surrounding areas? During the real estate boom of the mid-2000s, there was a major influx of buyers in Southwest Florida. Builders flocked to the area, banks had lax lending standards, and homes flew off the shelves.

Because real estate markets naturally ebb and flow, an inevitable market correction came. Suddenly there were more homes than interested buyers, and many of the homeowners who had subprime mortgages saw their monthly payments balloon. After missing a couple of payments, the foreclosure process began on their homes.

Homeowners who are struggling with their mortgages may try to sell their homes through a short sale, which involves selling their property for less than they owe. If they're unable to do this, the property will be put up for auction. If the auction doesn't result in a sale, ownership of the homes revert to the lender, and the house is now considered a "bank owned" home or "REO."

Because lenders aren't particularly interested in owning real estate, Cape Coral foreclosures generally sell for much less than they would have a couple of years ago. Right now, buyers looking for a slice of paradise in Southwest Florida can scoop up some great deals if they shop carefully. There are also fewer buyers on the market because lending requirements have become much stricter. This puts you in a strong position to negotiate for your Cape Coral home. 

Purchasing a short sale, foreclosure property, or bank owned homes does have its risks, however. Not all properties are worth what the bank is trying to sell them for, and some houses will require costly repairs. To make sure that the home you're thinking of buying is a good investment, it's important to have an experienced real estate agent by your side.
