The latest report from RealtyTrac indicates that, as expected, November foreclosure activity has fallen off a cliff. In November “default notices, scheduled auctions and bank repossessions were reported on 262,339 U.S. properties, a 21 percent decrease from the previous month and a 14 percent decrease from November 2009. One in every 492 U.S. housing units received a foreclosure filing during the month.” This is the largest Y/Y and M/M drop in RealtyTrac’s records. “Foreclosure activity decreased dramatically in November, with fewer than 300,000 properties receiving a foreclosure notice for the first time since February 2009,” said James J. Saccacio, chief executive officer at RealtyTrac. “While part of the decrease can be attributed to a seasonal drop of 7 to 10 percent that typically occurs in November, fallout from the foreclosure robo-signing controversy forced lenders and servicers to hit the pause button on many foreclosures while they scrambled to revamp their internal procedures and revise or resubmit questionable paperwork.” It’s a good thing then that our very own, and very corrupt, attorneys general are about to announce a major settlement that will wipe the slate clean and allow the conveyor to crank out 1000 foreclosures a day once again… And all manner of thing shall be well.
