I pull this data each month and watch the trends, looking for signs of change.. Not much change this month. A slight uptick in the number of distressed listings, but not enough to signify an upward spike. We have been trending upwards the last few months, testing the peak from earlier in the spring. Stay tuned..

New Bank Owned Listings (new listings actually owned by the bank – think foreclosures and REOs.)
New Short Sale Listings (new listings, still owned by the ‘owner’, but needing the bank to take a short payoff because the home is worth less than the mortgage balance. The bank will need to approve the sale.)
New Bank Owned + Short Sale Listings (a combined look at the above charts – these are the new listings where the bank is going to take a loss on the property, and the best reflection of my former Distressed Listings chart.)
New Vacant Listings (new listings which are vacant homes. While not all vacant listings are distressed listings, I am including them because they represent a very large percentage of the overall market, and therefore provide some measurement of Distressed.)
I am including Single Family Detached Homes listed for sale in Maricopa County via the Arizona Regional Multiple Listing Service. These numbers are believed accurate but not guaranteed.
