Trending: High-End Homes See More Foreclosures

The national foreclosure rate fell to 1.4% in December 2014, the lowest rate since March 2008, according to CoreLogic. However, foreclosures involving mortgages of $750,000 plus remain at a higher rate of 2.5%. After the housing market crash of 2008, foreclosure percentages have reached as high as 6.8% in May of 2012. Economists agree that it appears the market is on the mend. However, struggling homeowners with more expensive mortgages are recovering less quickly than others.

Before the housing market crashed, homeowners with $750,000 plus mortgages had lower rates of foreclosure than average. The recession has changed all that. CoreLogic data shows that in January 2006, the national average foreclosure rate was .1% and the foreclosure rate for $750,000 plus mortgages was .05%.

Some experts believe the higher foreclosure rate for “wealthier” homeowners is linked to the stock market crash and the subsequent housing market crash in 2008. Another contributing factor is that most states with higher stock in luxury homes also have the highest foreclosure rates since the crash. For example the three states with the highest foreclosure rates are New Jersey with a rate of 5.2%, New York with a rate of 4.0% and Florida with a rate of 3.7%. All of which have a large concentration of high-end real estate.
