A report released today by Florida Realtors, formerly the Florida Association of Realtors, found the state’s foreclosure crisis is not just a burden for low-income families.
About 23 percent of foreclosures reviewed in the study were of homes owned by families making an annual income of between $50,000 and $75,000. Another 20 percent were of homes of families bringing in $100,000 or more annually.
“Floridians of all incomes and social backgrounds have felt the effects of the foreclosure crisis,” said John Sebree, Florida Realtors vice president of public policy, in a press release. “By looking to the root causes of foreclosures among individuals and families who have actually experienced it, Florida Realtors lead the way in the fight to restore confidence in real estate and get homeowners back on their feet.”
