Foreclosures On Long Island Are Expected To Increase In 2012

According to Realty Trac, foreclosures in December of 2011 in Nassau and Suffolk Counties fell by 34%. There are several reasons why foreclosures rates slow down at the end of the year. Banks traditionally have hesitated to foreclose on homes and put people on the street at Christmas time. In addition the paperwork concerning foreclosure has been backlogged at financial institutions and there are currently delays in the courts related to the courts being overwhelmed by the volume of foreclosures that have already been initiated by financial institutions.

New Defenses In Foreclosure Proceedings

Prior to a lender bringing a foreclosure action, the lender and the lender’s attorney must make sure that they have all the appropriate paperwork to document the foreclosure proceeding. They must prove they actually are the appropriate party to bring the foreclosure action.

Foreclosed Homes Depress Real Estate Market

The large number of foreclosed homes on Long Island has had a depressing effect on the real estate market. Prices are being forced down due to the high volume of foreclosed homes that are still on the market unsold.

It is estimated it takes about three years for a home to go from foreclosure to sale in the State of New York. It is anticipated as lenders become more adept at qualifying their paperwork the foreclosures in the 2012 will increase to make up for the backlog that currently exists. It looks like there will be much more pain felt by families on Long Island during 2012.
