Last year only 462,970 homes nationwide were repossessed by banks, a 31 percent decrease compared to 2012. Improved economic factors were cited for the improvement of the U.S. housing market.
United States foreclosure rates reached an all-time high 2010. RealtyTrac vice president, Daren Blomquist said that fewer homes entering into foreclosure procedures reinforces the idea that the housing market is improving.
