Louisville foreclosures map updated for April 2014

Louisville foreclosures map for April 2014

Similar to what we’ve seen on recent our December Louisville foreclosure map, the locations where foreclosures are happening are the same, it’s just the amounts that are changing.

What was once a monstrous issue is now almost an after-thought… Louisville foreclosures.

Today, the topic of distressed houses (foreclosures, short sales, etc.) don’t dominate the public mindshare like they used to. Sure, there are still a good number of Louisville foreclosures but this number continues to drop.

Key on this stat from the chart below: During April 2013, the foreclosure rate was 2.03%. Thyis year that number is much lower, at 1.49%, it’s lowest point in years.

Foreclosure activity in Louisville-Jefferson County was lower than the national foreclosure rate, which was 1.77 percent for April 2014.

Let’s hope we don’t see mortgage rules loosen too much. Compared to National rates, Louisville is performing much better as we see in this CoreLogic quote.

US 4.54% 5.78% -1.24% 1.77% 2.66% -0.89%

The delinquency rate is also declining so we can expect a further reduction of Louisville homes being foreclosed in the future.
