New foreclosure filings fell a whopping 75 percent across Broward County last month, another indication that the housing market crisis is a thing of the past. Broward had 275 new cases filed last month, compared with 1,087 in May 2013, according to RealtyTrac, Inc. It was the 10th month in a row that foreclosure filings have dropped. New cases also declined 75 percent last month in Palm Beach County.
Real estate experts attribute this drastic decline to the new state law that took effect last year, which resulted in lenders delaying foreclosure filings until they have all of their paperwork in order.
Florida had the nation’s highest foreclosure rate for the eight month in row, an indicator of just how hard the state was hit as a result of the housing market crisis.
