Mass. foreclosure activity continues to fall
Foreclosure activity in Massachusetts continued to fall last month, with 247 foreclosure deeds recorded locally in September. This is a 52% drop from year ago levels, the Boston Globe reported.
“The foreclosure numbers in September and the third quarter further bolster the opinion that foreclosures are in full retreat due to a booming real estate market and government programs designed to assist homeowners who are delinquent on their mortgages,” Warren Group chief executive Timothy M. Warren Jr. said in a statement. “It’s been a solid year of foreclosure decreases, indicating the worst of the housing crisis is over.”
