With so much talk about short sales as an option to foreclosure, and with many new Government short sale Programs it’s nice to see they are actually closing and getting short sale approval on more and more short sales.

With so much talk about  giving homeowners foreclosure options, stopping foreclosure and working homeowners to avoid losing their homes, (except for a principle reduction loan modification that makes sense!) you might think that the foreclosure filings such as notice of default and notice of trustee sales in El Dorado Hills And El Dorado County would both be down. NOT THE CASE!  Foreclosure filings for both El Dorado Hills and El Dorado County are both way up, yet the postponement of the El Dorado County Trustee Sale (at the courthouse steps) have just continued…

Foreclosure Numbers Surge – Five Year Record

Foreclosures surge- more bank owned properties coming!

Foreclosures surge- more bank owned properties coming!


Well, I wonder what this will mean to our home prices that seem to have stabilized?  Now, these are national statistics on foreclosures, but has expressed exactly the same trends here in California and the Sacramento area too…

According to news.Yahoo:

LOS ANGELES – A record number of U.S. homes were lost to foreclosure in the first three months of this year, a sign banks are starting to wade through the backlog of troubled home loans at a faster pace, according to a new report.

RealtyTrac Inc. said Thursday that the number of U.S. homes taken over by banks jumped 35 percent in the first quarter from a year ago. In addition, households facing foreclosure grew 16 percent in the same period and 7 percent from the last three months of 2009.

More homes were taken over by banks and scheduled for a foreclosure sale than in any quarter going back to at least January 2005, when RealtyTrac began reporting the data, the firm said.

“We’re right now on pace to see more than 1 million bank repossessions this year,” said Rick Sharga, a RealtyTrac senior vice president.

Foreclosures began to ease last year as banks came under pressure from the Obama administration to modify home loans for troubled borrowers. In addition, some states enacted foreclosure moratoriums in hopes of giving homeowners behind in payments time to catch up. And in many cases, banks have had trouble coping with how to handle the glut of problem loans.

These factors have helped slow the pace of foreclosures, but now that trend appears to be reversing.

“We’re finally seeing the banks start to process the inventory that has been in foreclosure, but delayed in processing,” Sharga said. “We expect the pace to accelerate as the year goes on.”

In all, more than 900,000 households, or one in every 138 homes, received a foreclosure-related notice, RealtyTrac said. The firm based in Irvine, Calif., tracks notices for defaults, scheduled home auctions and home repossessions.

Homeowners continue to fall behind on payments because they’ve lost their job or seen their mortgage payment rise due to an interest-rate reset. Many are unable to refinance because they now owe more on their loan than their home is worth.

The Obama administration’s $75 billion foreclosure prevention program has only been able to help a small fraction of troubled homeowners.

About 231,000 homeowners have completed loan modifications as part of the Obama administration’s flagship foreclosure prevention program through March. That’s about 21 percent of the 1.2 million borrowers who began the program over the past year.

But another 158,000 homeowners who signed up have dropped out — either because they didn’t make payments or failed to return the necessary documents. That’s up from about 90,000 just a month earlier.

Last month, the administration expanded the program, launching a plan to reduce the amount some troubled borrowers owe on their home loans and give jobless homeowners a temporary break. But the details of those programs are expected to take months to work out.

The states with the highest foreclosure rates in the first quarter were Nevada, Arizona, Florida and California, with Nevada leading the pack, RealtyTrac said.

Rising home prices and speculation fueled a wave of home construction there during the housing boom. But now the state, particularly around the Las Vegas metropolitan area, is saddled with a glut of unsold homes.

Still, the number of homes in Nevada that received a foreclosure filing dropped 16 percent from the first quarter last year.

All told, one in every 33 homes in Nevada was facing foreclosure, more than four times the national average, RealtyTrac said.

Foreclosure filings rose on an annual and quarterly basis in Arizona, however.

One in every 49 homes there received a foreclosure-related notice during the quarter.

Florida, meanwhile, posted the third-highest foreclosure rate with one out of every 57 properties receiving a foreclosure filing.

California accounted for the biggest slice overall of homes facing foreclosure — roughly 23 percent of the nation’s total. One in every 62 properties received a foreclosure filing in the first quarter.

Sacramento Foreclosure Specialist Reports:

Foreclosures Will Continue

Foreclosures Will Continue

I was Researching Sacramento area HAMP loan mod success rates this nmorning and came across this startling article in DSNews. It looks as if all the good news the Obama powered media has been pumping out is a little off center.  Kinda Scary!

Home loan delinquency rates in the United States have now surpassed 10 percent, Lender Processing Services (LPS) reported this week.When you factor in homes already in the foreclosure process, the total rate of noncurrent mortgages sits at 13.3 percent, according to the data in the Florida-based company’s national loan-level database.This rate indicates that more than 7.2 million mortgage loans are now behind on payments, LPS explained, with another one million properties already taken back by banks and in REO status.LPS’ January 2010 Mortgage Monitor report, shows that within the population of loans that were current at the end of 2008, the percent of “new” serious delinquencies is 4.64 percent – higher than any other year analyzed. Of loans that were current as of December 31, 2008, by December 2009 there were 2.3 million new loans that were considered seriously delinquent.

Seemingly less-risky, prime mortgages continue to loom large as the industry’s big, pink elephant. Prime loans, including agency, non-agency, and jumbo, have experienced deterioration at a worse pace than subprime, Federal Housing Administration (FHA) insured mortgages, and all loans as a whole, LPS said. The company’s analysis shows that within the prime loans category, those with unpaid principal balances between $417,000 and $600,000 have performed the worst. The Mortgage Monitor report also indicates that 2009 vintage loans are performing better than loans from any of the prior five years and have been steadily improving as pools of loans grow larger. This improvement is attributed to more restrictive underwriting guidelines, but that also means “liquidity is still not available where it is needed most,” LPS said.The company’s analysis shows that states with most noncurrent loans are: Florida, Nevada, Mississippi, Arizona, Georgia, California, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, and Ohio.Those with the fewest include: North Dakota, South Dakota, Alaska, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, Vermont, Colorado, Oregon, and Washington.
