Our fine metro area continued to make progress through its foreclosure inventory in 2013, according to new analysis.
Foreclosure inventory in Houston-area is down a whopping 25 percent year-over-year through January, according to the latest National Foreclosure Report from data firm CoreLogic.
Other notable findings from the report included:
- Foreclosure inventory in Houston-area is now just 0.9 percent of mortgaged properties, down from 1.2 percent a year ago (this is hardly surprising, given Houston does have the nation’s healthiest mortgage market).
- There were 9,683 completed foreclosures in the 12-month period ending in January.
- Finally, the area’s serious delinquency rate remains relatively low at just 3.6 percent.
