Tampa Foreclosures: An Update

Nov 27, 2007
Perhaps more than anything else, when it comes to major economic news of 2007, the top story likely will be the record number of mortgage foreclosures that have been initiated throughout the course of the year. Indeed, Tampa foreclosures also hit record levels during the course of the past year. You may be wondering what the future has in store as far as Tampa foreclosures are concerned.

For several months, many real estate and financial experts have expressed concern about future trends associated with foreclosures. Indeed, there were more than a few analysts that predicted the foreclosure rate would increase dramatically.

However, more recently, when it comes to foreclosure trends, including Tampa foreclosures, a growing number of experts predict that perhaps the worst is behind us. These professionals are beginning to project that when it comes to foreclosures in many parts of the country, including in the Tampa Bay, fewer foreclosures are expected to be filed beginning at the present time and into the future.

First of all, the defaults amongst higher risk home mortgage loans have already reached their peak. The reality is that a significant portion of all foreclosure actions that were filed during the course of the past twelve to eighteen months involved sub-prime lending.

Second, when it comes to foreclosure trends, there has also been some relief provided by the governmental agencies that oversee lending practices and policies in the United States. This has included an adjustment of the prime rate by the Federal Reserve. These steps and actions have been designed to take at least some pressure off the real estate and home mortgage lending market to prevent a growing number of foreclosure actions being filed.

Third, many major home mortgage lenders are also taking steps of their own to help control the rate of foreclosures that are being filed. For example, the nation's largest home mortgage lender Countrywide announced in October 2007 that it would be offering its customers with Adjustable Rate Mortgages the chance to refinance with a traditional mortgage loan. The company is allowing its customers to make this change in advance of a planned increase in their adjustable rate mortgage loans.

Of course, if you have found yourself in a less than idyllic financial situation and might be facing the prospect of a foreclosure, you will want to be as proactive as possible. You might want to give serious consideration to obtaining appropriate professional assistance to help you in coming up with a variety of options that very well may be available to you in order to avoid a foreclosure action. You need to keep in mind that there are options available to you that very well might be ideal and very well may assist you in working to avoid being the subject of a foreclosure action.
