Florida's foreclosure gridlock got a kick start this spring with
scheduled auctions in June doubling to more than 9,000 from last year as cases
are hastened through the legal system.
The increase, as measured by a RealtyTrac report to be released today, is a signal of the court's determination to clear aging and undefended cases and means more inventory will soon be available to the home-hungry real estate market. Auctions are typically scheduled when the final foreclosure judgment is made.
