1 in 5 homes in the US recently sold were foreclosed and bank owned, according to CNN. I looked at recent sales in the Eugene Springfield area, and we are faring better. In the last month, about 1 in 10 sales of houses were bank owned (11%), and about 1 in 10 (9%) were short sales. Why? Perhaps because our market didn’t rise or tank to such extremes as others in the country.
