IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/10/14 -- RealtyTrac® (www.realtytrac.com), the nation's leading source for comprehensive housing data, today released its U.S. Foreclosure Market Report for May 2014, which shows foreclosure filings -- default notices, scheduled auctions and bank repossessions -- were reported on 109,824 U.S. properties in May, a 5 percent decrease from the previous month and a 26 percent decrease from May 2013 to the lowest monthly level since December 2006. The report also shows one in every 1,199 U.S. housing units with a foreclosure filing during the month.
Despite the decrease in overall foreclosure activity nationwide, 21 states posted monthly increases in overall foreclosure activity, and 11 states posted annual increases in foreclosure activity.
States with annual increases in foreclosure activity included Massachusetts: up 58 percent from a year ago to an 18-month high; New Jersey: up 37 percent from a year ago, making May the 23rd month out of the last 27 where New Jersey foreclosure activity has increased annually; New York: up 18 percent from a year ago to a 14-month high; and Indiana: up 12 percent from a year ago, marking the third consecutive month with an annual increase.
Among the nation's 20 largest metropolitan statistical areas, four posted year-over-year increases in foreclosure activity:
- Boston-Cambridge-Quincy: up 44 percent from a year ago to an 18-month high following 21 consecutive months of year-over-year decreases
- New York-Northern New Jersey-Long Island: up 23 percent, marking the 24th month out of the last 27 with an annual increase
- Washington-Arlington-Alexandria: up 8 percent, marking the 13th month out of the last 15 with an annual increase
- Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington: up 5 percent, marking the 14th month out of the last 15 with an annual increase
"It's not surprising that some of the states with the longest foreclosure timelines are those with markets still dealing with increasing foreclosure activity even as the country as a whole continues to hit new lows," said Daren Blomquist, vice president at RealtyTrac. "On the other hand, the increase in bank repossessions in some states with shorter foreclosure timelines like California and Oregon demonstrates there is still some pent-up foreclosure activity in those states as well."
Bank repossessions at lowest level since July 2007, up in NY, NJ, CT, MD, OR, CA
Lenders repossessed 28,373 U.S. properties in May, down 6 percent from the previous month and down 27 percent from May 2013 to the lowest monthly level since July 2007 -- an 82-month low.
Despite the decrease nationally, bank repossessions (REO) increased from the previous month in 25 states and were up from a year ago in 14 states, including the following:
- New York: up 117 percent, the 16th month out of the last 20 with an annual increase
- New Jersey: up 96 percent, the 11th of the last 12 months with an annual increase
- Connecticut: up 85 percent, the 15th consecutive month with an annual increase
- Maryland: up 40 percent, the 15th consecutive month with an annual increase
- Oregon: up 29 percent, the sixth consecutive month with an annual increase
- California: up 26 percent, the second consecutive month with an annual increase after 28 consecutive months with annual decreases
- Illinois: up 20 percent, the second consecutive month with an annual increase after 12 consecutive months with annual decreases.
"We continue to see a decline in distressed properties through the Southern California market," said Chris Pollinger, senior vice president of sales at First Team Real Estate, covering the Southern California market. "As the market continues to stabilize, foreclosure activity is being replaced by traditional equity sellers, who continue to replace distressed inventory, especially in the foreclosure and REO markets."
U.S. foreclosure auctions at lowest level since December 2006, up in 16 states
Lenders scheduled foreclosure auctions for 47,085 U.S. properties in May, down 4 percent from the previous month and down 22 percent from a year ago to the lowest level since December 2006 -- an 89-month low.
Despite the national decrease, scheduled foreclosure auctions increased from the previous month in 27 states and was up from a year ago in 16 states, including the following:
- Utah: up 199 percent, the 12th consecutive month with an annual increase
- Oregon: up 157 percent, the 11th consecutive month with an annual increase
- New Jersey: up 70 percent to the highest level since July 2010 -- a 46-month high
- Massachusetts: up 43 percent to an eight-month high
U.S. foreclosure starts at lowest level since December 2005, up in 12 states
Lenders started the public foreclosure process on 49,240 U.S. properties in May, down 10 percent from the previous month and down 32 percent from a year ago to the lowest level since December 2005 -- a 101-month low.
Despite the national decrease, foreclosure starts -- which can be the scheduled public foreclosure auction in some states -- increased from the previous month in 17 states and was up from a year ago in 12 states, including the following:
- Massachusetts: up 178 percent to a 15-month high
- Indiana: up 67 percent, marking the third consecutive month with an annual increase

- New Jersey: up 15 percent, the 25th out of the last 27 months with an annual increase
- New York: up 14 percent to a 14-month high
Florida, Maryland, Nevada, Illinois, Ohio post top state foreclosure rates
Florida foreclosure activity decreased 30 percent on a year-over-year basis in May -- the 10th consecutive month with an annual decrease -- but the state still posted the nation's highest state foreclosure rate for the eighth consecutive month. One in every 436 Florida housing units had a foreclosure filing in May, nearly three times the national average.
Maryland foreclosure activity decreased 5 percent on a year-over-year basis in May -- following 22 consecutive months of annual increases -- but the state still posted the nation's second highest foreclosure rate for the month: one in every 621 housing units with a foreclosure filing.
Nevada foreclosure activity decreased 57 percent on a year-over-year basis in May -- the eighth consecutive month with an annual decrease -- but the state's foreclosure rate still ranked third highest for the month. One in every 717 Nevada housing units had a foreclosure filing in May.
Illinois foreclosure activity decreased 23 percent on a year-over-year basis in May, but two consecutive months with annual increases in REO activity boosted the state's foreclosure rate to fourth highest nationwide in May. One in every 790 Illinois housing units had a foreclosure filing for the month.
Ohio foreclosure activity decreased 27 percent on a year-over-year basis in May -- the ninth consecutive month with an annual increase -- but the state still posted the nation's fifth highest foreclosure rate for the month: one in every 805 housing units with a foreclosure filing.
Other states with foreclosure rates among the nation's 10 highest in May were New Jersey at No. 6 (one in every 815 housing units with a foreclosure filing); Delaware at No. 7 (one in every 818 housing units); Indiana at No. 8 (one in every 823 housing units); Connecticut at No. 9 (one in every 835 housing units); and South Carolina at No. 10 (one in every 851 housing units).
"May 2014 delivered further noticeable evidence of a growing economy throughout Ohio," said Michael Mahon, executive vice president/broker at HER Realtors, covering the Cincinnati, Columbus and Dayton, Ohio markets. "As property values continue to increase, homeowners are taking advantage of restored equity by placing their homes for sale. This recent activity is assisting in balancing the overall listing inventory across much of Ohio, lessening the year over year foreclosure activity."

Florida accounted for the eight highest foreclosure rates among metropolitan statistical areas with a population of 200,000 or more, led by Palm Bay-Melbourne-Titusville at No. 1, with one in every 303 housing units with a foreclosure filing -- nearly four times the national average.

The RealtyTrac U.S. Foreclosure Market Report provides a count of the total number of properties with at least one foreclosure filing entered into the RealtyTrac database during the month -- broken out by type of filing. Some foreclosure filings entered into the database during the month may have been recorded in previous months. Data is collected from more than 2,200 counties nationwide, and those counties account for more than 90 percent of the U.S. population. RealtyTrac's report incorporates documents filed in all three phases of foreclosure: Default -- Notice of Default (NOD) and Lis Pendens (LIS); Auction -- Notice of Trustee's Sale and Notice of Foreclosure Sale (NTS and NFS); and Real Estate Owned, or REO properties (that have been foreclosed on and repurchased by a bank). The report does not count a property again if it receives the same type of foreclosure filing multiple times within the estimated foreclosure timeframe for the state where the property is located.
