Ranking the Top Ten States for Foreclosures

Real Estate Agent

Foreclosures and short sales still seem to dominate most real estate markets in the country. Foreclosure filings -defined as a default notice, auction sale notice or bank repossessions were up 1 percent in January from the previous month. That means one in every 497 housing units received a foreclosure filing during the month. The diminishing numbers may seem like good news but there is some indication that lenders are inundated with paperwork and legal issues, slowing the process.

We will probably see foreclosure notices increase in the near future. Follow this link for a full report on foreclosure activity.
