Foreclosure, Some New Facts:


Foreclosures are touching literally everybody in our country, either you are one of the “unlucky one” who are facing foreclosure, or you know of a friend or family member in that situation or your home’s value was affected by a nearby-foreclosed property, the reality is that, foreclosures are part of our daily life and it seams that is going to be like this for a while.

After researching the market, I found some facts that I wanted to share with you.

Here are some facts that I was able to find:

*US Foreclosure Filings In February Up 30% On Year –RealtyTrac

*Slightly more than 290,000 properties- one in every 440 housing units - were slapped with a foreclosure filing in February, up nearly 30% from a year earlier
*Foreclosure cases rise on Long Island to a new higher level of 54% last month

*In Florida 8,450 existing homes sold, up 24 percent from the 6,810 homes sold in January 2008, according to FAR

*6% increase from January, was the third-highest monthly total - following those in August and December 2008

*Filings spike after moratoriums expire this month
