Murrieta, CA Foreclosure Update

Most of us here in the Murrieta, CA area and all over the country grew up thinking that if we planned well and played by the rules, we’d never have to stand by as our financial lives unraveled. 

But upheaval on Wall Street, unacceptable rates of unemployment and plummeting real estate values have taken their toll.  Since 2007, 7.9 million homeowners have lost their homes to foreclosure. Current estimates are that one in four homeowners owe more on their mortgages than they could get from the sale of their home.  Millions more homes across the nation will be lost to foreclosure before this real estate crisis runs its course.

Murrieta, CA Foreclosure UpdateAccording to RealtyTrac, which tracks foreclosuresCA was third-highest in the nation for foreclosure filings in 2011 with more than 3 percent. Riverside County, CA had the highest foreclosure rate in the state during the first half of 2011. Between January and June, 2011 a total of 25,901 mortgage default notices, auction sale notices and bank repossessions were recorded countywide, translating to 1 in 30 households in some stage of foreclosure.

Murrieta, CA had the fourth highest rate of new foreclosure activity in the county, behind Moreno Valley with the third highest, Corona with the second highest and Riverside with the highest, reports showed. 

The sad fact is that foreclosure is not an isolated event. For months leading up to the loss of a home, financially strapped homeowners live under a cloud of uncertainty.  And then for many years afterwards, the blow to credit gets in the way of buying another home or buying anything on credit. Foreclosure can even complicates employment prospects.
