KENTUCKY FORECLOSURE ACTIVITY DOWN 2 PERCENT IN JUNE

IRVINE, Calif. – July 28, 2008 – Foreclosure filings were reported on 731 Kentucky properties in June, a 2 percent decrease from the previous month and 9 percent below the level reported for June 2007, according to the latest RealtyTrac® U.S. Foreclosure Market Report.

 

RealtyTrac publishes the largest and most comprehensive national database of foreclosure and bank-owned properties, with over 1.5 million properties from over 2,200 counties across the country, and is the foreclosure data provider to MSN Real Estate, Yahoo! Real Estate and The Wall Street Journal’s Real Estate Journal.

 

“After a large increase in May, foreclosure activity settled down a bit in June for Kentucky,” said James J. Saccacio, chief executive officer of RealtyTrac. “Two factors that are influencing these wild swings in activity are an unemployment rate of that is well above the national average, and a slowing appreciation rate of home values, although they remain positive. On the plus side, recent relief efforts extending unemployment benefits for residents who have remained jobless for the past two years may have a slowing effect on foreclosure activity a few months down the road.”

 

Kentucky ranked 31st in the country in total properties with foreclosure filings for June. One in every 2,583 Kentucky households received a foreclosure filing during the month, ranking it 39th among the 50 states.

 

Jefferson County tops in foreclosure activity for June

Jefferson County led the state, reporting 337 properties with foreclosure filings. Second highest total was in Kenton County, reporting 132 properties with foreclosure filings. Fayette County registered the third highest total, reporting 102 properties with foreclosure filings. Campbell County came in fourth, reporting 68 properties with foreclosure filings for the month.

 

Kenton County posts state’s highest foreclosure rate in June

With one in every 526 households receiving a foreclosure filing in June — 4.9 times the state average and on par with the national average — Kenton County posted the highest county foreclosure rate in the state for the month. Second highest rate was in Campbell County, where one in every 568 households received a foreclosure filing — 4.6 times the state average. Jefferson County had the third highest rate, with one in every 966 households receiving a foreclosure filing — 2.7 times the state average. Fourth highest rate was in Pendleton County, where one in every 994 households received a foreclosure filing during the month.

 

State a minor contributor to nation’s foreclosure total in June

Kentucky accounted for less than 1 percent of the 252,363 properties with foreclosure filings reported nationwide in June. The national total represents a decrease of more than 3 percent from the previous month but is still 53 percent ahead of the total reported for June 2007. One in every 501 U.S. households received a foreclosure filing during the month.

 

Report methodology

The RealtyTrac Monthly U.S. Foreclosure Market Report provides a count of the total number of properties with at least one foreclosure filing reported during the month — broken out by type of filing at the county, state and national level. RealtyTrac’s report incorporates documents filed in all three phases of foreclosure: Default Notice of Default (NOD) and Lis Pendens (LIS); Auction Notice of Trustee Sale and Notice of Foreclosure Sale (NTS and NFS); and Real Estate Owned, or REO properties (that have been foreclosed on and repurchased by a bank). If more than one foreclosure document is filed against a property during the month — which is extremely rare — only the most recent filing is counted in the report. The report also checks if the same type of document was filed against a property in a previous month. If so, and if that previous filing occurred within the estimated foreclosure timeframe for the state the property is in, the report does not count the property in the current month.
