Foreclosure Deposits Remain At Near Historical Levels In The Triad In November | Local
Until recently, most foreclosures that took place in 2020 and 2021 were related to vacant and abandoned properties.
“After a first wave after the government’s moratorium ends, it looks like foreclosure activity may slow down as we move towards the end of the year,” said Rick Sharga, branch executive vice president from Attom RealtyTrac.
“Despite concerns over a wave of pandemic defaults, mortgage default rates and foreclosure starts have continued to decline due to government and industry programs and the recovery of the US economy. “
Sharga said the November foreclosure filing data “suggests that the ‘forbearance equals foreclosure’ story was incorrect.” “
“The efforts of the government and the mortgage services industry have potentially prevented millions of unnecessary foreclosures due to COVID-19. “
