10,042 U.S. Properties Received a Foreclosure Filing in November 2020, Down 14 Percent from Last Month; Florida tops out with the highest foreclosure rate, leading the nation in REO filings; Foreclosure Starts Uptick Monthly in Missouri, Indiana and Georgia

ATTOM Data Solutions, licensor of the nation’s most comprehensive foreclosure data and parent company to RealtyTrac (www.realtytrac.com), a foreclosure listings portal, today released its November 2020 U.S. Foreclosure Market Report, which shows there were a total of 10,042 U.S. properties with foreclosure filings — default notices, scheduled auctions or bank repossessions — in November 2020, down 14 percent from a month ago and down 80 percent from a year ago.

“It’s not unusual to see foreclosure activity slow down beginning in November and through the holiday season,” said Rick Sharga, executive vice president at RealtyTrac, an ATTOM Data Solutions company. “Both foreclosure starts and repossessions were down about 80% on a year-over-year basis, but it might be worth noting that a few cities that may be vulnerable to the pandemic-driven flight from urban areas to the suburbs – like New York City, Chicago, and Miami – were among the markets with the highest levels of foreclosure actions.”

Florida, Illinois and Oklahoma post highest state foreclosure rates

Nationwide one in every 13,581 housing units had a foreclosure filing in November 2020. States with the highest foreclosure rates were Florida (one in every 7,109 housing units with a foreclosure filing); Illinois (one in every 7,285 housing units); Oklahoma (one in every 8,128 housing units); New Mexico (one in every 9,236 housing units); and Delaware (one in every 9,310 housing units).

Among the 220 metropolitan statistical areas with a population of at least 200,000, those with the highest foreclosure rates in November 2020 were Champaign, IL (one in every 3,636 housing units with a foreclosure filing); Shreveport, LA (one in every 3,806 housing units); Macon, GA (one in every 3,947 housing units); Davenport, IA (one in every 4,038 housing units); and Evansville, IN (one in every 4,296 housing units).

Those metropolitan areas with a population greater than 1 million that posted the worst foreclosure rates in November 2020, were St. Louis, MO (one in every 4,454 housing units); Cleveland, OH (one in every 5,368 housing units); Jacksonville, FL (one in every 5,877 housing units); Louisville, KY (one in every 6,373 housing units), and Birmingham, AL (one in every 6,591 housing units).
