Foreclosure Trash-Out Specialist Frank Patrick Discusses The 2011 Foreclosure Forecast

Frank Patrick, Property Preservation and REO Specialist, recently discussed the 2011 REO projections revealed to congress by the Federal Reserve Governor.

Scottsdale, Ariz. – January 7, 2011 – Frank Patrick, foreclosure trash-out and reo specialist, recently wrote an article explaining the recent report by the Federal Reserve that laid out it’s 2011 predictions for foreclosure filings.  The report stated that the Federal Reserve expects approximately 4.25 million more foreclosure filings in the next two years, with two million plus expected in 2011 as well as in 2012, similar to the record amount of foreclosures that occurred during this year.

In the article published on, called “REO Listings: 2011 Foreclosure Forecast Predicts Two Million More REOs,” Frank explains, “The pace of both foreclosures and REO sales has slowed in the final quarter of 2010, due to uncertainty over lenders’ problematic processing of foreclosures.  REO buyers have been reluctant to invest in distressed properties until these legal troubles have been resolved.”

“A current REO inventory of around two million homes as well as the more than four million that are expected to come through the pipeline in the months to come, there is little doubt that 2011 will see a renewed boom both in foreclosures and in REO sales, due to continuing economic pressures – as experts see little chance of a housing recovery unless REO properties are promptly processed and sold,” Frank continued.
