Positive Spin on Black Mark for our area.
Thanks for posting this and attempting to put a positive spin on what has been a black mark on area. Until the foreclosures and short sales stop, our property values will not fully recover. Unfortunately I am aware of a few homeowners who have decided to go the “strategic foreclosure” route. To compound this negative strategy, they then rent the house on the way out and make a 100% profit. I have to wonder what happens in the end to these people. The bankruptcy courts no longer grant bankruptcies no questions asked. If there is money or assets, debtors are expected to be paid. Sure would like to get to the point where the only foreclosures were due to normal misfortune and they were few and far between like most of the rest of the country.

Many of those who chose a strategic default are getting contacted by collection agencies who bought default judgements for pennies in the dollar. One company in that business is Dyck O’Neal. They have reportedly filed more than 10,000 suits in Florida this year. For many, the other shoe is being dropped.
