Recent research from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) shows that distressed buyers are slowly but surely making their way back to the Gulf Shores housing market.
According NAR’s report, nearly 1 million borrowers who were foreclosed on, short sold their home or received a deed in lieu of foreclosure over the last eight years have already purchased a new home. Another 1.5 million are expected to do so over the next five years, as they once again become eligible for financing.
The Gulf Shores housing market could see a surge of so-called “boomerang buyers,” those who lost their homes to these foreclosures, but are ready to buy again. Jill Schlesinger explains what this means in a recent CBS news report.
