How can you tell if a home is being foreclosed or if it's just for sale? I mean, I see for sale signs on homes but they are being sold by realtors. I always thought that foreclosed homes were auctioned off. Am I wrong?

Home foreclosures soar in the Lehigh Valley

By Riley Yates and Kevin Amerman | Of The Morning Call October 5, 2008 In Lehigh County, foreclosure filings this year have already exceeded those of 2007. In Northampton County, they're on track to dwarf last year's mammoth number.
The foreclosure rate in the valley doesn't surprise me.If you look at the demographics of Allentown, you'll see that we have a large population of people who are uneducated. The majority of these people probably got suckered into ARMs without understanding what they got into. Is it their fault? Yes and no. They should have read what they were getting into, and if they didnt understand, they should have found someone that did.

Glad that you are so interested in Lehigh Valley housing, NR. Thinking of moving back to PA? Maybe you want to move to the kinder gentler part of the state.

No. He wants to move to the "hell hole genetic cess poll" that is Scranton, according to SNL.

All of this is very bad news for the people of the Lehigh Valley, yet you seem to be getting some strange satisfaction out of the whole situation.

Most of us read the papers, I read these same articles in Sunday's Morning Call, however, the difference between you and I is that I felt bad for the people losing their homes, and you ran to the computer to gloat. Not cool.

Toobusy...

Foreclosed homes are not always auctioned off. It depends on how the bank would like to proceed with the home...Foreclosure is a very complicated and sometimes long process....but here is a link of foreclosed homes in Lehigh County, Northampton County still does this the old fashion way where you have to go to the court house to pick up the list....

Thanks

OH MY GOD---------THE MARKET IS DOWN AND FORECLOSURES ARE UP ----You don't say.

Well this is some sort of investigative reporting!!!........Besides 1 foreslosed home in every 1200 households is still below 1% by my numbers....(Er its a called a calculator, it has numbers but you just cant talk on it).

but it does prove 2 things:
"Tell them how foreclosures are up 50 - 60% in Northamton & Lehigh."
.....YOU KNOW NOTHING....................As we all have been saying all along.
And you are willing to say anything without much thought or facts!!!!!.

Do you know what the moral of the stroy is here........
Don't take housing advise from a guy who wears brown shorts to work!!!!!!!

I went through one one days worth of auctions and found two houses on the street next to me! I think they were both "continued" for another month.
