Number of California homes entering foreclosure falls to 2007 levels - latimes.com
DataQuick President John Walsh said in a statement that it was unclear whether the drop in the number of homes entering the foreclosure process was a sign that the worst was over or simply that the process itself had slowed.
“The foreclosure process has always been the sanitation department of the housing sector,” he said. “The question is whether these lower … numbers mean that there’s less distress to process, or if we’re just seeing distress get processed at a slower pace.”
The number of homes being lost to foreclosure plunged. The number of trustee deeds, which are the public documents filed when a foreclosure is completed, fell 27.8% from the prior quarter and were down 48.5% from the same period as last year. A total of 21,851 deeds were filed last quarter.
So maybe it's good and maybe it isn't. Thanks to Fred Pilot for the link.
