Here is a chart showing the Foreclosure Activity in the 4-county area since March of 2008:

Chart showing NW MS Foreclosure

About 6.9% of the active listings in the Northwest MS market are foreclosures (including HUDs, REO, VA, Fannie Mae).  That is a drop from 8.2% back in January.  Here is a breakdown of the foreclosure market by community:

Foreclosures in NW MS by community

Olive Branch contines to see the most foreclosure activity, but Southaven is a close second.  Since Olive Branch and Southaven are desireable communities to live in, many of the well-priced foreclosures in good shape receive multiple offers and are sold pretty quickly.

For comparisions to previous numbers, see the last NW MS Foreclosure Market Report compiled in January 2009.
