According to ATTOM Data Solutions – a real estate tracking service, there were a total of 66-thousand U.S. properties with foreclosure filings in October 2018. That is up 21% from an all-time low last month, but still down almost 5 percent when compared to a year ago.
Although foreclosure activity is down nationally, 15 states posted increased activity in October this year, including Florida; Texas; Georgia; Michigan; and Arizona.
