SOUTH DAKOTA FORECLOSURE ACTIVITY DECREASES 19 PERCENT IN JANUARY

Yearly Foreclosure Total Up 5 Percent From January 2007

 

IRVINE, Calif. – Feb. 26, 2008 – South Dakota reported 22 foreclosure filings in January, a 19 percent decrease from the previous month, but still a 5 percent increase from January 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 million properties from nearly 2,500 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.

 

“Although South Dakota foreclosures have increased slightly from this time last year, the numbers appear to be headed back downward in January,” said James J. Saccacio, chief executive officer of RealtyTrac. “Statistics show that South Dakota was the only state to show an increase in home sales last year. This is likely contributing to the recent decline.”

 

South Dakota ranked the second lowest state in the country in total foreclosures for the month. The state’s foreclosure rate of one foreclosure filing for every 15,815 households ranked it 48th among the 50 states.

 

Minnehaha County accounts for entire share of state total

Minnehaha County accounted for all 22 foreclosure filings in South Dakota for January. Minnehaha County also reported the highest county foreclosure rate in the state for the month, one foreclosure filing for every 3,084 households — 5.1 times the state average.

 

State contributes less than 1 percent to nation’s monthly total

Total foreclosure filings in South Dakota accounted for less than 1 percent of the 233,001 foreclosure filings reported nationwide in January. The national total represents an 8 percent increase from the previous month, and is 57 percent above the total reported for January 2007. The nation’s foreclosure rate increased to one foreclosure filing for every 534 U.S. households for the month.

 

The RealtyTrac Monthly U.S. Foreclosure Market Report provides the total number of foreclosure filings — both nationwide and by state — over the preceding month. RealtyTrac’s report includes properties in all three phases of foreclosure: Defaults — Notice of Default (NOD) and Lis Pendens (LIS); Auctions — 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).
