Is Las Vegas Still A Great Place To Invest In Real Estate?
New Jersey, Maryland, Nevada post top state foreclosure rates in March
Nationwide in March one in every 1,604 properties had a foreclosure filing. See: http://www.realtytrac.com/news/foreclosure-trends/march-and-q1-2017-u-s-foreclosure-market-report/
States with the highest foreclosure rates in March were New Jersey (one in every 497 housing units with a foreclosure filing); Maryland (one in every 820 housing units); Nevada (one in every 857 housing units); Delaware (one in every 858 housing units); and Illinois (one in every 863 housing units).
Markets below pre-recession levels include Los Angeles, Dallas, Houston
The 102 local markets with first quarter foreclosure activity below pre-recession averages included Los Angeles (46 percent below); Dallas (73 percent below); Houston (52 percent below); Miami (44 percent below); and Atlanta (67 percent below).
Other major markets with first quarter foreclosure activity below pre-recession averages were San Francisco, Riverside-San Bernardino in Southern California, Phoenix, Detroit and Seattle.
“The markets HER Realtors serves are 28 to 45 percent below pre-recession levels,” said Matthew Watercutter, senior regional vice president and broker of record for HER Realtors, covering the Dayton, Columbus and Cincinnati markets in Ohio. “The reduced number of foreclosure properties is consistent with lower unemployment rates, and is contributing to the lack of inventory available to consumers. That low inventory, coupled with increased demand, is causing an increase in housing costs, a reduction in days on market and causing frustration among homebuyers wanting to purchase.”
