Miami–Dade has Second Highest Rate of Repeat Foreclosures in the Nation

May 17, 2017 Posted by kingcade

Miami-Dade County has the second-highest rate of repeat foreclosures of any major market, according to a newly released report from Attom Data Solutions.  New York City took the number one spot.

Miami-Dade’s rate was 32 percent, followed by Los Angeles County with 39 percent and Maricopa County (Phoenix), with 26 percent, according to Attom’s April 2017 report.  New York’s rate was 54 percent.

A repeat foreclosure is defined as a foreclosure start filed in 2016 on a property with an address and owner’s last name combination that also showed a previous foreclosure start with the same property address and owner combination in the last 10 years, according to Attom.

Nationwide foreclosure activity in April dropped to the lowest level since November 2015. Miami-Dade saw its foreclosure rate fall 35 percent in April, year-over-year, to 986 foreclosure filings from 1,509 filings in April 2016.

Miami-Dade’s rate of foreclosures still remains higher than Broward County, which had 730 and Palm Beach County 578 in April.
