Foreclosure Rate on the Decline in U.S., Florida

April 24, 2014 Posted by kingcade

According to a recent report by Black Knight Financial Services, the share of loans in foreclosure is down nearly 37 percent year-over-year, dropping to rates not seen since 2008. In Florida, 12 percent of homeowners with mortgages are not current with their payments, the third largest percentage in the nation of those behind on mortgage payments.

Less than 4 million people are not current on their mortgage payments- the lowest amount since November 2007. The report said Florida has had the second biggest improvement in the past six months, with a 20 percent reduction in delinquency. These levels have not been seen since October 2007, with foreclosures at a 7.5 year low. In addition, pre-payment rates have increased from last month to eight-tenth of a percentage point- not seen since 2008.
