Tampa Bay Area Zombie Foreclosures Still a Problem

If you own a home in the Tampa Bay area, you may have heard about the so-called zombie foreclosures that continue to happen in the region. These are foreclosed properties that are on the verge of falling apart, and they have presented a few problems in many ways. We read a story recently about how these odd foreclosures are being addressed…or not.

​“There’s some good news and bad news on the Tampa Bay real estate front. Home prices are improving, but the region is still suffering from so-called zombie foreclosures. “My suggestion would be to knock it down,” said Sam Womack, walking up to the house next door. It’s an eyesore, he says. A nuisance, yes! Maybe – even dangerous. “There’s water collecting in the pool. I mean, it is literally like Jurassic Park,” said Womack.”

In simple terms, a zombie property is one that is not occupied, not for sale, and deteriorating to the point that it may be dangerous, as well as unsightly for any other property that is located near to it.
