Foreclosures Archives

Will a Florida Supreme Court decision reignite foreclosure woes?

In our last post, our blog spent some time examining acceleration clauses in the context of home mortgages. To recap, if a mortgage contains an acceleration clause, it means that in the event of default by the borrower, the lender can seek immediate payment of the full balance of the loan and, failing that, initiate foreclosure proceedings.

A primer on home mortgages and acceleration clauses

On the momentous occasion when a person's offer to purchase a home is accepted, they start eagerly watching the calendar, counting down the days until they are finally given the keys.

Indeed, hundreds continue to be haunted by what have become to be known as "zombie foreclosures."

Florida still struggling with foreclosures, underwater mortgages

Report: Florida continues to rank high for foreclosure activity

Back in January, our blog discussed a report from one data analytics group examining the state of the foreclosure market in 2015. Here, the report concluded that while the scars of 2010's foreclosure crisis had largely healed, it's effects were still lingering in many states -- including Florida.

Neighborhood Stabilization Initiative includes Miami-Dade County

Beginning on Dec. 1, the Federal Housing Finance Agency will open up the housing market in Florida counties such as, Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach, to include more than 2,000 homes that have been foreclosed. Similar efforts have also begun in Detroit and Chicago earlier this year.
