Ohio Foreclosure Activity Rises in November

Statewide filings up 17 percent from October; Rate ninth highest

Foreclosure filings — default notices, scheduled auctions and bank repossessions — were reported on 10,184 Ohio properties in November, a 17 percent increase from October, but still 3 percent below the level reported for November 2010, according to the latest RealtyTrac® U.S. Foreclosure Market Report.

Ohio had the ninth highest foreclosure rate in the nation, reporting one in every 500 housing units with a foreclosure filing in November – 1.2 times the national average.

California continues to lead the nation in terms of total properties with foreclosure filings by a large margin, reporting 63,689 properties with foreclosure filings. Second ranked Florida reported 24,739 properties with foreclosure filings during the month. Third place was Michigan, where 13,777 properties with foreclosure filings were reported. Illinois had the fourth highest total, reporting 12,398 properties with foreclosure filings while Georgia took fifth place, tallying 12,327 properties with foreclosure filings.

The remaining states that make up the nation’s top 10 in November include Arizona (10,766), Ohio (10,184), Texas (10,124), Nevada (6,512) and Wisconsin (4,382). The top 10 accounted for 75 percent of the nation’s total foreclosure activity for the month.

Fulton County posts top foreclosure rate in the state for November
 One in every 219 housing units in Fulton County had a foreclosure filing in November — 2.6 times the national average and 2.3 times the state average — the highest foreclosure rate of all Ohio counties for the month. Pickaway County had the second highest rate of one in every 332 housing units with a foreclosure filing during the month — 1.7 times the national average and 1.5 times the state average. Butler County had the third highest rate of one in every 341 housing units with a foreclosure filing during the month — 1.7 times the national average and 1.5 times the state average.

Cuyahoga County has highest foreclosure total in November
 Cuyahoga County tallied the highest level of foreclosure activity in the state, reporting 1,451 properties with foreclosure filings for the month. Franklin County had the second highest total, reporting 1,212 properties with foreclosure filings. Hamilton County was third, reporting 963 properties with foreclosure filings. Fourth highest was Montgomery County, recording 734 properties with foreclosure filings. Summit County was fifth highest, tallying 493 properties with foreclosure filings for the month.

State a major contributor to total foreclosure activity in November
 Ohio accounted for 5 percent of the 224,394 properties with foreclosure filings reported nationwide in November. Total U.S. activity decreased by 3 percent from October and was down over 14 percent from the level reported in November 2010. One in every 579 U.S. housing units received a foreclosure filing during the month.

“Despite a seasonal slowdown similar to what we’ve seen in each of the past four years, November’s numbers suggest a new set of incoming foreclosure waves, many of which may roll into the market as REOs or short sales sometime early next year,” said James Saccacio, co-founder of RealtyTrac. “Overall foreclosure activity is down 14 percent from a year ago, the smallest annual decrease over the past 12 months, and some bellwether states such as California, Ohio and Massachusetts actually posted year-over-year increases in foreclosure activity in November.

“Scheduled foreclosure auctions reached a nine-month high in November, corresponding to a recent surge in default notices that began back in August,” Saccacio continued. “Many of the new defaults that started the foreclosure process over the past few months are now being scheduled for public foreclosure auction.”
