According to foreclosure-tracking firm RealtyTrac, the number of foreclosure filings nationwide dropped for the second straight month in December. After falling 21 percent in November, filings were down by an additional 2 percent in December.
November marked the first time since February 2009 that the number of monthly foreclosures filings failed to surpass 300,000 units.
As usual, foreclosure density varied by region last month, with just 5 states accounting for close to half of the nation's repossessed homes.
The number of foreclosure filings rose 3 percent in September, according to foreclosure-tracking firm RealtyTrac.
California, Florida, Arizona and Georgia accounted for more than half of all bank repossessions in March 2010. It's a disproportionate distribution of foreclosures. Together, the 4 states represent just 23 percent of the overall U.S. population.
According to foreclosure-tracking firm RealtyTrac, foreclosure filings topped 300,000 for the 12th straight month last month as 1 in every 418 U.S. homes received a foreclosure filing.
