Foreclosure Inventory by State Map
• The five states with the highest number of completed foreclosures for the 12 months
ending in August 2012 were: California (110,000), Florida (92,000), Michigan
(62,000), Texas (58,000) and Georgia (55,000). These five states account for 48.1
percent of all completed foreclosures nationally.
• The five states with the highest foreclosure inventory as a percentage of all
mortgaged homes were: Florida (11.0 percent), New Jersey (6.5 percent), New York
(5.2 percent), Illinois (4.8 percent) and Nevada (4.6 percent).
• Overall, Foreclosure Inventory Declines to Lowest Level Since April 2010
We know why foreclosure inventory is still falling (as of August). Te combination of foreclosure abatements and private equity (and other) investor purchases are skimming the cream off of the top.
What is interesting is where these are concentrated in — I’m a sucker for a good map.
