Distressed Sales Continue to Fall!

In line with the broad decline in foreclosure inventory, distressed sales continue to make up for a smaller share of overall residential sales. Approximately 12 percent of respondents who reported a sale in the August REALTORS® Confidence Index Survey sold a distressed property, substantially down from levels seen a few years ago.

For the past 12 months, properties in "above average" condition have been discounted by an average of 10-11 percent, while properties in "below average" condition were discounted at an average of 15-20 percent.
