Wyoming Foreclosures Climb in November

Foreclosure filings up 17 percent from October

 

Foreclosure filings — default notices, scheduled auctions and bank repossessions — were reported on 88 Wyoming properties in November, up 17 percent from the previous month and a 100 percent increase from the level reported in November 2009, according to the latest RealtyTrac® U.S. Foreclosure Market Report.  

 

One in every 2,800 Wyoming housing units received a foreclosure filing in November, the 45th highest state foreclosure rate in the nation.

 

“While foreclosure activity declined in many parts of the nation, the number of Wyoming filings rose significantly in November to double what was reported for the same time last year,” said James J. Saccacio, chief executive officer of RealtyTrac. “This rise in activity seems unusual amid fallout from the nation-wide ‘robo-signing’ controversy and considering Wyoming’s recently improved unemployment rate of 6.6 percent. However, the state should see some slowdown in activity in the coming months as long as its job market remains stable and lenders continue to have their processes thoroughly checked for accuracy.”

 

Natrona County has top foreclosure rate in November

Natrona County posted the top foreclosure rate in Wyoming for November, with one in every 1,271 housing units receiving a foreclosure filing — 2.2 times the state average. Laramie County had the second highest foreclosure rate, reporting one in every 1,312 housing units receiving a foreclosure filing — 2.1 times the state average. Johnson County came in third, with one in every 1,890 housing units receiving a foreclosure filing — 1.5 times the state average.

 

Laramie County reports highest foreclosure total in the state

Laramie County led the state in foreclosure activity, reporting 29 properties with foreclosure filings. Natrona County had the second highest total reporting 25 properties with foreclosure filings. Sweetwater County was third highest, tallying nine properties with foreclosure filings. Campbell County reported four properties with foreclosure filings for the month, the state’s fourth highest activity level. Fremont County was fifth, reporting three properties with foreclosure filings.

 

State a minor contributor to total foreclosure total

Wyoming accounted for less than 1 percent of the 262,339 properties with foreclosure filings reported nationwide in November. Total U.S. activity decreased by 21 percent from the previous month, and was down more than 14 percent from the level reported in November 2009. One in every 492 U.S. housing units received a foreclosure filing during the month.

 

Report methodology

The RealtyTrac U.S. Foreclosure Market Report provides a count of the total number of properties with at least one foreclosure filing entered into the RealtyTrac database during the month — broken out by type of filing by state, county and metropolitan statistical area. Some foreclosure filings entered into the database during the month may have been recorded in previous months. Data is collected from more than 2,200 counties nationwide, and those counties account for more than 90 percent of the U.S. population. 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 received for a property during the month, 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.
