Don’t Let Your Foreclosure Become a Zombie Foreclosure

Zombies have always been a part of popular culture. In recent years, zombie films, television shows and movies have become extremely prevelant in mainstream media. With the upcoming release of films such as World War Z, zombies are more popular than ever. Zombies have now made their way  into real estate by way of “zombie foreclosures.”

A zombie foreclosure is when a homeowner receives a foreclosure notice and simply packs up and leaves the property figuring the bank will take care of the rest. What the homeowner doesn’t realize, however, is that more often than not the bank doesn’t follow through on the process. The property is then still attached to the homeowner’s name and they’re still responsible for the property taxes.

According to RealtyTrac, there are about 302,000 zombie foreclosures. When a zombie foreclosure happens, often the house falls into disrepair and is neglected. The lawn isn’t mowed, the outside of the home starts to fall apart and it causes the value of homes in the neighborhood to plummet. Statistically, Florida led the nation in zombie foreclosures with about 91,000 homes. After Florida on the rankings was Illinois, with 31,668, and third was California, with 28,821.
