March 2010 Foreclosures

For the 203 sold homes in SLO County in March 2010, 45% of these homes were foreclosures (either REO or Short Sale).  In March 2009, we also had 45% foreclosures. But there is a difference in  the mix of REOs and Short Sales. In March 2010, 26% of the homes were REOs compared to 37% in March 2009. Short Sales in March 2010 were 19% compared to 8% in March 2009.

Median home prices for REOs and Short Sales were pretty close to each other but the median home price for non-foreclosures was a lot higher.
