Foreclosure filings dip for the month of May. RealtyTrac, a national leader of foreclosure data, announced that filings fell over 6% from April to May. Although a total of 321,480 properties received default notifications, which represents am 18% increase from a year ago, it is the smallest annual gain since mid-2006. There is a silver lining! Florida is still in the Top 3 nationally in foreclosures. Nevada has the most, followed by California. To put it in perspective, on average there is 1 foreclosure per 398 households nationally. In Nevada, that number is 1 in 64. That is 6 times the national average! California has 1 in 144 & Florida has one in 148.
