Florida Sees Rise in Foreclosure Auctions

July 11, 2013

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.
