Not only were the overall sales numbers lower, the number of distressed properties was also lower with just 33% of these sales being either a short sale or a REO. This is running about half of the distressed sales percentages last year.
The number of distressed properties is also making a shift away from REO’s, or bank owned properties, to more short sales. This is a combination of Hawaii’s new foreclosure law along with Federal pressure on the banks.
