U.S. foreclosure activity swelled by 15% in October

In October, foreclosure activity increased overall by 15 percent, although this number is still lower than this time last year, the National Mortgage Professional reported on November 13.

In a foreclosure market report released by RealtyTrac, last month’s overall foreclosure activity was considered to be the highest in terms of monthly basis since the first quarter of 2010. Lenders reportedly repossessed 27,914 properties, a 22 percent increase compared to last September. The report revealed that at least one in every 1,069 homeowners nationwide filed for foreclosure last month. Though foreclosure filings–including bank repossessions, default notices, and scheduled auctions–totaled 123,109 last month, the record is still lower by 8 percent than last year. RealtyTrac vice president Daren Blomquist stated that last month’s surge was the result of banks’ efforts to work ahead before the holiday season.

RealtyTrac recorded 116,913 properties in the U.S. are in different parts of the foreclosure process. Some 26,343 homes were recovered by banks last month, a two percent increase compared to July.
