Foreclosures Rise in Higher Price Ranges


New data from shows that about 30 percent of foreclosures in June involved residences in the top 33 percent of local housing values, a gain from 16 percent at the start of the foreclosure crisis in 2006. Meanwhile, the bottom one-third of housing markets, by home value, has dipped from 55 percent of foreclosures three years ago to 35 percent. Analysts fret that rising foreclosures among pricier properties could create additional pressure in a housing market that has shown signs of stabilizing of late, thanks to a rebound in lower-priced home sales.


The Mortgage Bankers Association adds that prime loans accounted for 58 percent of foreclosure starts in the second quarter versus 44 percent a year earlier, while subprime mortgages accounted for roughly 33 percent of foreclosure starts compared to 50 percent year over year.

Hey Blake,

Watched that report myself. In the long-run most of it made perfect sense to me, no big surprises.
