Top Florida Real Estate News on Florida Foreclosures You Missed Last Week

1.  Foreclosures Lowest Level Since 2006

Last week Realty Trac released data showing that foreclosure filings are at their lowest level since 2006. “U.S. foreclosure starts have not only returned to pre-housing crisis levels, they have fallen well below those pre-crisis levels and are still searching for a floor, down 4 percent from a year ago.”

2.  Good News for Florida

The report also stated that, “Florida foreclosure activity in the first half of 2015 decreased 22 percent from a year ago, but the state still posted the nation’s highest foreclosure rate: 1.06 percent of housing units (one in every 95) with a foreclosure filing during the six-month period.”

3.  South Florida 6th-Worst for Foreclosures

Additionally, “South Florida 6th-worst for foreclosures in first half 2015” according to Realty Trac.

So you tell me, is the glass half full or half empty? Are you an optimist or pessimist when it comes to the Florida real estate market?
