Foreclosures fall to bubble-era lows, CoreLogic says

The housing market is healing, although foreclosures still have room to improve.



The housing market has nearly healed from the wounds of the crisis nearly a decade ago, but some measures of distress still aren’t back to the levels they held before the housing downturn began.

There were 30,000 completed foreclosures in October, data provider CoreLogic said Tuesday. That’s down 25% compared to a year ago and a whopping 75% lower than the post-crisis peak of 118,287 in September 2010.

But foreclosures averaged 22,000 per month between 2000 and 2006, CoreLogic noted in a release.

Foreclosures in five states accounted for 36% of all foreclosures across the country: Florida, Michigan, Texas, Ohio, and Georgia.

Since the start of the financial crisis in September 2008, there have been about 6.5 million foreclosures nationally.

The number of mortgages in serious delinquency, meaning 90 days or more overdue, also fell 25% compared to a year ago in October. There were 1 million mortgages, or 2.5% of all home loans, in serious delinquency, the lowest since August 2007.
