Some big, positive numbers for Colorado foreclosures came out today from RealtyTrac. According to their report, the number of properties in Colorado with foreclosure filings in September fell over 20% from September of 2011. In addition, the month-over-month nuber fell nearly 8%!
While these number corespond with other reports, these are HUGE improvements and support what we have been saying for over a year: the Colorado housing market, including, but not limited to Colorado foreclosures, is in a slow, steady climb.
From the Denver Business Journal:
The number of Colorado properties with foreclosure filings fell 20.3 percent in September from the same month in 2011, and was down 7.9 percent from August, according to a monthly report Thursday from RealtyTrac Inc.
The state had 3,869 properties with filings last month, or one out of every 572 housing units statewide, said RealtyTrac, an Irvine, Calif.-based private marketer of foreclosure properties.
RealtyTrac ranked Colorado eighth among the 50 states for its foreclosure filing rate in September.
