Florida Home Prices Looking Up

The Florida Realtors’ latest data indicate that pending sales and median prices rose in February 2012. The statewide median sales price for single-family existing homes in February was $134,000, up 7.2 percent from the year-ago figure, according to data from Florida Realtors Industry Data and Analysis department. The statewide median for townhome-condo properties was $95,000, up 15.9 percent over Feb. 2011.

“The overall picture that these statistics show is of a stabilizing housing market,” said Florida Realtors Chief Economist Dr. John Tuccillo. “While closed sales are down, so are listings and so is inventory. These are signs of a market that’s moving from being a buyer’s market to a balanced market… For the past year, median sales prices have been slowly rising; and over a longer period of time, prices have really flattened out – again, signs of an improving housing market.”

The full statewide housing activity report is available here

Old Republic National Title Insurance Company Continuing Educational Seminar Was a Success!

We had a great time at last week’s Old Republic seminar in Maitland, Florida! Not only did we meet a lot of awesome and interesting title professionals from that region, but we’re happy to report that many of them have decided to utilize Premier Lien Research’s services. Title agents and paralegals alike were anxious to pass the savings to their clients and minimize their clients’ and underwriters risk. One lucky attendee even won a mini-tablet courtesy of Premier Lien Research!

We can’t wait for the next regional seminar/conference to meet even more people and spread the word about PLR’s valuable services. More pictures from the seminar can be seen on Premier Lien Research’s Facebook page found HERE.

Top 10 Code Violations; Florida Named as #1 State for Violations

Field Asset Services (FAS), a Texas based property preservation, REO maintenance and repair services company released its list of Top 10 Types of Code Violations. The list is based on FAS’s research compiled from its work with 30 mortgage and asset management clients nationwide. Here’s the list:

"No". House in Mid-City New Orleans,...

By Editor B / Bart Everson via Wikimedia Commons

Top 10 Types of Code Violations
1.    High grass and weeds
2.    Nuisance such as abandoned vehicles and trash at the curb.
3.    Graffiti
4.    Open or vacant structures
5.    Junk, trash, and debris
6.    Minimum housing standards or habitability usually pertaining to the condition of the property.
7.    Substandard structure such as dilapidated sheds or detached garages.
8.    Unmaintained or unsecured swimming pools
9.    Dead trees and landscaping
10.  Vacant property registration

Said Dale McPherson, Chief Executive Officer, Field Asset Services about code violations:

Cities and local municipalities across the nation are becoming more vigilant towards issuing code violations to reduce blight and improve neighborhood conditions. With foreclosure timelines reaching nearly 21 months, these fines can add up over time, even exceeding the value of the property itself in some cases.

According to FAS data, Florida surpasses all other states in the amount of these violations. For example, FAS once encountered a property in Coral Springs, Florida that, since 2008, had violation citations accruing for an overgrown lawn, roof discoloration, a stagnant pool, and poor exterior maintenance. At at rate of $125/day for 927 days plus additional penalties, the property owed the City of Coral Springs $434,654.50.

While FAS worked to remedy the code violations and lower the fine amount for the Coral Springs home, hundreds of thousands of properties in Florida are without the benefit of FAS’ services and the daily accruing code violation fees for those properties are unrecorded in official records. Only by performing an unrecorded lien search can a prospective owner, lender, asset manager, real estate agent, attorney, or title/closing company know the true value of the subject property.
