Default Notices Fall For 9th Straight Month

Default notices fell 2.0 percent in October and were 19 percent below year-before levels, according to RealtyTrac’s U.S. Foreclosure Market Report. It was the ninth-straight month they’ve decreased on a year-over-year basis. Total foreclosure activity was down 4.0 percent from the previous month and repossessions were down 9.0 percent. James J. Saccacio, chief executive officer at RealtyTrac, said the declines were probably due to the foreclosure freeze, which may lead to further decreases in November. More here and here.

Foreclosures Up 4 Percent In Q3

According to RealtyTrac’s U.S. Foreclosure Market Report, filings were reported on 930,437 properties, up nearly 4 percent from the previous quarter but down 1 percent from the third quarter of 2009.

Foreclosure Filings Up From June, Down From 2009

RealtyTrac’s U.S. Foreclosure Market Report for July shows foreclosure filings, including default notices, scheduled auctions, and bank repossessions, up nearly 4 percent from the month before. Filings were reported on 325,229 properties or one in every 397 housing units, which represents a 10 percent drop from July 2009. James J. Saccacio, chief executive officer of RealtyTrac, said the declines in new default notices have been offset by near-record levels of bank repossessions.

Total Foreclosure Filings Fall, Repossessions Rise

Foreclosures fell year-over-year for the first time since RealtyTrac began measuring them in January 2006. The total number of foreclosure filings, which include notices of default, scheduled auctions, and bank repossessions, dropped 2 percent from a year ago and 9 percent from March. James Saccacio, RealtyTrac’s CEO, said the numbers suggest foreclosure activity has begun to plateau but will not drop off anytime soon. Saccacio believes the overall numbers will stay high and repossessions will hit record levels as lenders work through the backlog of distressed properties. In April, 92,432 homes were repossessed, a 45 percent increase over the same month last year. More here, here, and here.
