Florida’s Foreclosure Rate Drops to No. 2

Florida has fallen to the No.2 spot in the nation for foreclosure activity in August behind Nevada after three consecutive months at No. 1, according to RealtyTrac. In August, one in every 383 residences in Florida received a foreclosure filing. A total of 23,372 Florida properties received foreclosure filings in August, down 14 percent from July and down 15 percent from a year earlier.

That reflected a 12.23 percent decline in foreclosure activity from a year earlier and a 27.28 percent decline from July. In both Miami-Dade and Broward, new foreclosures filings were down in August from a year earlier, while auction notices and bank repossessions increased.
