Recent real estate data revealed that there was an increase in repossessed homes and foreclosures nationwide, a May 21 report of Business Insider stated.
According to the data analysis released by RealtyTrac, there was a nine percent increase in nationwide foreclosure filings in April, or 125,875 homes, compared to the same month last year. RealtyTrac noted that last month’s foreclosure increase is still a lingering effect of the national foreclosure crisis. Vice President Daren Blomquist of RealtyTrac reassured that April’s foreclosure increase will not trigger a new wave of crisis. Foreclosure rates are still reportedly high in states like Florida, Maryland, Nevada and New Jersey. However, nationwide, foreclosure starts have remained below pre-crisis levels, according to Blomquist.
