A Floridan mortgage lender is hooking up with a New York auction house to move over $400 million in inventory.  It will cover various property types in Florida from multi-family, commercial and hotels along with of course many condos.  They will also be selling some notes as well.

Hopefully this auction will go well and more inventory will be taken off the market in such an over-saturated real estate location of South Florida.

Miami, Globest – With so many distressed properties in Florida, a Miami lender with loans on many of them has engaged the New York-based Carlton Exchange to auction off over $400 million of REO assets and loans on multifamily, retail, hospitality and office properties as well as land. Although the properties are scattered in various parts of Florida, most are in South Florida, especially Miami-Dade.

Included among the loan collateral being auctioned by the Carlton Exchange are: a 148-acre former golf course, once known as the California Club golf course in Miami-Dade County, which had been approved for 825 detached and multi-family homes; a new, Class A, 86,000-square-foot-office building in the city of Miami, and three small hotels on Ft. Lauderdale Beach.

According to Joe Korbar, managing director for the Carlton Exchange, the new Class A office building in Miami has 17,000 square feet of retail and 69,000 square feet of office space. Although it was designed as an office condominium, today, most of the office space is being rented, while the mortgage being sold is on 54,000 square feet.

The number of REO properties in New York has grown at an overwhelming rate, according to a recent report by the Furman Center for Real Estate and Urban Policy, a joint network of the New York University (NYU) School of Law and the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service at NYU.

The report looked at the outcomes of New York City properties over the last 15 years, paying particular attention to trends in recent years. Although only a small portion of properties entering foreclosure ended up as bank-owned, the increased rate at which these properties entered REO status was staggering. From December 2006 to December 2008, the number of bank-owned properties in the city jumped from 290 to 1,830 and dropped slightly to 1,750 in September 2009.
