any realtor with access to the county tax records can export the foreclosure activity status into excel. Easiest is a comparison by zip code of quantity listed versus quantity already foreclosed. Variance between the two is the amount being withheld. A few zips have hundreds already foreclosed and just a few on the market. Even the non-profits tasked with the Neighborhood Stabilazation Program funds to purchase bulk REOs can't get any in San Joaquin County.

I can tell you, Ken, that in Stockton many houses are boarded up or vacant and not listed for sale or lease/rent. That indicates to me the fact that many owners are unwilling to offer the properties for sale. Just drive around Stockton and you will see them. If you cannot find them, let me know and I can give you some street names and locations. I would think many of these houses are not necessarily consumer-owned homes, however. It could be most of these properties are owned by investors or similar entities.

When a home is appraised the appraisal will take inconsideration of at least one home foreclosures if the house listed has the same comp's. However in some areas of the country entire cities are foreclosed is difficult for a home owner to sale their properties may opt to lease the their home instead or do a lease purchase option.
