Florida sees third highest foreclosure rate in US in February: RealtyTrac

Florida’s foreclosure rate in February remains high — the third highest behind Maryland and Nevada — despite a 35 percent decrease in foreclosure activity from a year ago. One in every 570 units had a foreclosure filing.

Nationwide, foreclosures are down 4 percent from January and 9 percent from a year ago, the lowest since July 2006.

“Given that August 2006 was the peak of the housing bubble, this eight-and-a-half year low in foreclosure activity is a significant milestone and a sign that nationwide foreclosure activity is on track to return to historic norms this year — and is possibly even headed below historic norms given the skinny-jeans-tight lending standards over the past five years,” RealtyTrac Vice President Daren Blomquist said in a press release.
