Foreclosure / Short Sale Related Statistics:

* 136 Properties with mortgages 60+ days late but not in foreclosure
* 42 MLS listings from bank owned properties
* 61% of bank owned homes not actively listed in MLS

These statistics indicate historically high foreclosure activity which suggests that future declines from foreclosures and other distressed selling activity, such as short sales, are possible.  They also suggest that banks are withholding inventory from the market, presumably to promote property value stabilization and increases, and that property value statistics may not reflect natural market forces and may not be reliable.
