Comparing foreclosure data on a year-to-year basis can sometimes be deceiving. While recent findings from CoreLogic show that foreclosure completions and foreclosure inventory rates both declined in August when compared to the same month in 2014, the firm also reported that 500,000 foreclosures were completed during the 12-month span, which is more than double the volume seen during “normal periods.”
- Five states account for nearly half of all foreclosure volume.
- Newly delinquent loan volume is down, while the foreclosure pipeline of legacy loans remains elevated.
- The South is accounting for the highest volume of completed foreclosures.
