Nearly 30% of Roanoke Homes Are Still Underwater – We can Help!

Nearly 30% of Roanoke, VA Homeowners are Underwater or Have Negative Equity in Their Home.  REsolutions Real Estate Services Can Help.

In May 2012 I posted an article on the negative equity problem in our market.  Although the real estate activity has picked up since then prices have only increased slightly and only in certain areas.  Many Roanoke home owners and Sellers cannot sell their homes because they have no equity and cannot afford to pay REALTOR commissions or even to sell at market value.

As you can see by the heat map and the summary table I’ve made below, some neighborhoods have been hit harder than others due to the high number of foreclosures and short sales in the market as a result of buying at the peak of the market and having a reduction in income, job loss or an increase in the mortgage payment that lead to a foreclosure.
