The south San Luis Obispo county cities of Grover Beach, Oceano, & Nipomo had a good deal of foreclosure activity in 2008. Of the 120 sold listings in Grover Beach, 33 were REOs, and 12 were closed short sales. So, about 37% of the sold market was foreclosure related. Currently, there are 61 homes and condos listed as active in Grover Beach, 3 are bank owned (REOs) and 7 are short sales. So, about 1/6 of the active market is foreclosure related, and there appears to be a shortage of REO inventory compared to the demand for bank owned listings in Grover.
