Number of Littleton Foreclosures Fall (Drastically)

Littleton Foreclosures

If you’re a buyer looking for Littleton homes, then you have experienced the significant lack of inventory of all types of properties. One of the biggest differences in the market of today versus the market of just a couple years ago, is the huge drop in the number of available Littleton Foreclosures on the market.

The chart below plots the available inventory of foreclosures in Littleton by month for the past 5 years. As you can see, 3 years ago there were 160+ Littleton foreclosures available. This year, that number sits under 15!

The pool of buyers experiencing the brunt of this foreclosure shortage are investors who specialize in fix and flip homes in Littleton. With such a small number of potential fix and flips, these investors are forced to bid the prices up and the shortage of inventory has forced some to look at other areas.

Over the past 6 months, we’ve seen most homes selling in under 2 weeks (see the median days on market below) and most sellers are receiving 99% of their list price at closing.

This program is similar to previous programs offered by various government organizations in the past (CHFA, Country programs). However, unlike several of those past programs, the Metro Mortgage Assistance Plus Program’s 4% down payment grant does not have to be repaid by the buyer.

This program can be used to buy any of the available Denver Homes or Littleton homes on the market. Here is a quick look at the basic program details:
