Foreclosure activity in California is beginning to trend downward. The locally-based tracking firm ForeclosureRadar says its statistics dropped last month for every stage of the foreclosure process – with new defaults falling more than 17 percent.
It’s the second straight month that the company has recorded across-the-board declines. Filings at each step of foreclosure – default, sale, repossession – also posted sharp drops from year-ago levels. While the numbers appear to paint a clear picture of improvement, ForeclosureRadar remains cautious in its analysis.
“Given the staggering number of delinquent home loans, foreclosure activity should be rising not falling as we found again this month” said Sean O’Toole, founder and CEO of ForeclosureRadar.
