The sun has risen and the shadows are fading on Orange County Real Estate

The sun has risen and the shadows are fading.

The so-called shadow inventories of foreclosed homes have all but disappeared here in Southern California.

As you can see from this map, the worst is behind us here in Orange County.  New England, however, is a different story.  Fortunately for us, we have better days ahead. This chart shows that OC will have 24-36 more months where we see distressed properties on the market.  For most of the eastern part of the United States, they still have 72+ months of inventory to clear.
