Last week’s most recent market news:

RealtyTrac’s U.S. Zombie Foreclosure and Vacant Property Report:

  • A “zombie foreclosure” happens when a homeowner moves out of the home after foreclosure proceedings have started, but then the foreclosure is held up in some way or canceled, leaving the title in the homeowner’s name.
  • This phenomenon is on the decline. A RealtyTrac report shows that 20,050 properties were vacant zombie homes at the end of the third quarter.
  • That’s a decrease of 27 percent since the second quarter, and 43 percent from the same quarter last year.
