As Maryland works through its backlog of foreclosures, the threat to the housing market grows. When a number of properties are foreclosed on in a particular area, the property values in that area drop. Even just one foreclosure can negatively affect the area. According to a report by the Federal Reserve Band of Cleveland, properties within a 260-foot radius of a foreclosed property lost up to one percent of their value.
Short sales make it easy both for sellers to avoid foreclosure and for new buyers to acquire property at affordable prices. This prevents the number of homes for sale from growing too large, and keeps property values up by reducing the number of foreclosed properties in the area. Short sales can also potentially recoup more of a property’s value than a foreclosure auction, which also helps to keep property values in the area up. Overall, if foreclosure can be avoided, everyone stands to benefit.
