Foreclosures in Orange County Up 33% – ForeclosureRadar.com Reports
In the latest foreclosure report published by ForeclosureRadar.com they show that the number of homes foreclose on by the banks in April 2010 was 33% higher than April 2009. This means that while banks are being encouraged to work out loan modifications for struggling homeowners, the reality is that they are not that successful in doing so.
|April||2009||2010||Up or Down|
|Notice of Default||3031||1671||-45%|
|Notice of Trustee Sale||1712||1776||4%|
|Sold to 3rd Party||162||297||83%|
A home goes through the following steps in the process of foreclosure:
1) Notice of Default – Filed after 3 or more missed payments
2) Notice of Trustee Sale – Notice to the buyer that they home will be sold at auction
3) Trustee Sale/Auction – If no one buys the home at the trustee sale it goes back to the bank (foreclosure) and becomes an REO. If a 3rd party buys it, it is also a foreclosure but the investor determines what to do with the property.
