Zombies Are Becoming Scarce In St Louis

Halloween may be just two days away however zombies are getting harder to find in St Louis, or at least “foreclosure zombies“. That’s right, according to the latest data from RealtyTrac, during the 3rd quarter of this year St Louis had 481 zombie foreclosures (homes in the foreclosure process, not yet foreclosed upon and the owner has vacated) or about 33 percent of the St Louis foreclosures.  This is down 40 percent from the quarter before and down 70 percent from a year ago.

This is good news as zombie foreclosures quickly become a nuisance as well as an eyesore for the neighborhood as the owner has left and is no longer maintaining the property however, the lender has not yet foreclosed and therefore is typically not maintaining the property either.  The zombie ends up kind of in “no man’s land” until the foreclosure is finally complete and the lender’s asset manager takes control.
