December 2012 Archives

Florida's foreclosure rate remains highest in the country

With foreclosures jumping 20 percent in November from this time last year, and 3 percent in October, Florida is the nation's leading state for foreclosures and foreclosure-related activity. The California data firm RealtyTrac states that the real estate recovery over the next year will probably be slow, as homeowners seeking debt relief are forced to relinquish their homes - with Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Pompano Beach among the worst areas hit.

South Florida banks allowing more non-foreclosure short sales

Increasing numbers of banks are approving short sales before homes go into foreclosure in Broward County, according to a recent RealtyTrac survey. As more homeowners are facing foreclosure, more and more lenders are willing to help some people unload their homes before they foreclose. This can be a source of relief to those facing serious financial challenges.

Consumers urged to be vigilant about credit card debt

For most Americans, December means lots of shopping. Thousands of consumers are frequenting malls and stores, which is good for Florida's economy, but can be potentially devastating to an individual's credit. This is the most common time of year for people to over-spend with credit cards, which can result in months or even years of crippling debt.
