What about US Real Estate Foreclosure Activity?

“Foreclosure activity in the first half of 2012 picked up in 125 of the 212 U.S. metros surveyed by RealtyTrac in the research firm’s latest Foreclosure Market Report.”

Foreclosure movement has increased and decreased in the past year, depending on the area. We found the following article that discusses this activity in detail: More than half of US metros post higher foreclosure activity.

This article mentioned that in Boston foreclosure activity declined more than 10%. A good sign for New England Real Estate and for the Vineyard since many of our home owners are from the Greater Boston Area.

  1. My best guess is we’re looking at up and down foreclosure statistics for the next couple of years until the employment picture strengthens.
