Vermont had the lowest foreclosure activity in the nation in November, with 10 foreclosures at a rate of only 1 for every 31,262 units. North Dakota was a very distant second with 49 foreclosures for a rate of 1 in 6,395. New Hampshire had 561 foreclosures for a rate of 1 in 1,064.RealtyTrac (www.realtytrac.com(link is external)), the leading online marketplace for foreclosure properties, has released its US Foreclosure Market Report for November 2010, which shows foreclosure filings ‘ default notices, scheduled auctions and bank repossessions ‘ were reported on 262,339 US properties in November, a 21 percent decrease from the previous month and a 14 percent decrease from November 2009. One in every 492 U.S. housing units received a foreclosure filing during the month.‘Foreclosure activity decreased dramatically in November, with fewer than 300,000 properties receiving a foreclosure notice for the first time since February 2009,’ said James J. Saccacio, chief executive officer at RealtyTrac. ‘While part of the decrease can be attributed to a seasonal drop of 7 to 10 percent that typically occurs in November, fallout from the foreclosure robo-signing controversy forced lenders and servicers to hit the pause button on many foreclosures while they scrambled to revamp their internal procedures and revise or resubmit questionable paperwork.’Both the 21 percent month-over-month decrease and 14 percent year-over-year decrease in foreclosure activity were the highest drops recorded since RealtyTrac began publishing the US Foreclosure Report in January 2005.Foreclosure Activity by TypeA total of 78,955 U.S. properties received default notices (NOD, LIS) in November, a 21 percent decrease from the previous month and a 31 percent decrease from November 2009 ‘ the 10th straight annual decrease in default notices. November’s default notices total was the lowest since July 2007.Default notices in states that practice judicial foreclosures (called Lis Pendens filings) decreased 31 percent from the previous month and were down 43 percent from November 2009. Meanwhile non-judicial default notices (NOD) decreased 9 percent from the previous month and were down 12 percent from November 2009.Foreclosure auctions (NTS, NFS) were scheduled for the first time on a total of 115,956 U.S. properties in November, a 16 percent decrease from the previous month and unchanged from November 2009. Scheduled judicial foreclosure auctions (NFS) decreased 34 percent from the previous month and were down 12 percent from November 2009, while scheduled non-judicial foreclosure auctions (NTS) decreased 7 percent from the previous month but increased 5 percent from November 2009.Lenders foreclosed on 67,428 U.S. properties in November, down 28 percent from the previous month and down 12 percent from November 2009. Bank repossessions (REOs) decreased month-over-month in 37 states and the District of Columbia. November’s REO total was the lowest since May 2009, but November’s numbers pushed the year-to-date 2010 REO total to more than 980,000 ‘ already above the record year-end total for 2009.Nevada, Utah, California post top state foreclosure ratesDespite a 20 percent monthly decrease in foreclosure activity, Nevada posted the nation’s highest state foreclosure rate for the 47th straight month. One in every 99 Nevada housing units received a foreclosure filing in November ‘ nearly five times the national average.Thanks in part to sharp monthly drops in foreclosure activity in Arizona, Florida, California and Michigan, Utah’s foreclosure rate leapfrogged to second highest among the states in November after being sixth highest the previous month. One in every 221 Utah housing units received a foreclosure notice during the month ‘ more than twice the national average.With one in every 233 housing units receiving a foreclosure filing in November, California posted the nation’s third highest foreclosure rate despite a nearly 14 percent decrease in foreclosure activity from the previous month and a 22 percent decrease in foreclosure activity from November 2009.Other states with foreclosure rates ranking among the top 10 in November were Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Idaho, Illinois and Colorado.10 states account for more than 70 percent of national totalCalifornia alone accounted for 22 percent of the national total in November, with 57,378 properties receiving a foreclosure filing during the month ‘ the nation’s highest state total. Default notices in California, which is primarily a non-judicial foreclosure state, decreased 11 percent from the previous month, while scheduled auctions decreased 2 percent and bank repossessions decreased 40 percent.With 32,938 properties receiving a foreclosure filing in November, Florida posted the second highest state total despite a 42 percent drop in foreclosure activity from the previous month. Default notices in Florida, which is a judicial foreclosure state, decreased 52 percent from the previous month, while scheduled auctions decreased 46 percent and bank repossessions decreased 20 percent.With 15,311 properties receiving a foreclosure filing in November, Michigan posted the third highest state total despite a 21 percent drop in foreclosure activity from the previous month. Default notices in Michigan, which is primarily a non-judicial foreclosure state, decreased 4 percent from the previous month, while scheduled auctions decreased 20 percent and REOs decreased 35 percent.Georgia posted the fourth highest state total, with 14,423 properties receiving a foreclosure filing, and Texas posted the fifth highest state total, with 13,369 properties receiving a foreclosure filing. Both states ‘ which are primarily non-judicial foreclosure states with short foreclosure processes that do not require a public default notice separate from the published foreclosure auction notice ‘ documented double-digit percentage increases in scheduled auctions from the previous month but also documented double-digit percentage decreases in bank repossessions from the previous month.Other states with foreclosure activity totals among the nation’s 10 highest in November were Illinois (12,941), Nevada (11,371), Ohio (10,458), Arizona (10,384) and Pennsylvania (5,672).Top 10 metro foreclosure rates in Nevada, California and FloridaWith one in every 86 housing units receiving a foreclosure filing in November, the Las Vegas-Paradise, Nev., metro area maintained the nation’s highest foreclosure rate among metropolitan areas with a population of 200,000 or more.

Some foreclosure filings entered into the database during the month may have been recorded in previous months. Data is collected from more than 2,200 counties nationwide, and those counties account for more than 90 percent of the U.S. population. RealtyTrac’s report incorporates documents filed in all three phases of foreclosure: Default ‘ Notice of Default (NOD) and Lis Pendens (LIS); Auction ‘ Notice of Trustee Sale and Notice of Foreclosure Sale (NTS and NFS); and Real Estate Owned, or REO properties (that have been foreclosed on and repurchased by a bank). The report does not count a property again if it receives the same type of foreclosure filing multiple times within the estimated foreclosure timeframe for the state where the property is located.

Correction: In a previous version of this article, the number of times Salazar won both a singles and doubles match was misstated. Salazar had won a singles and doubles match once before. The Daily Orange regrets this error.Valeria Salazar has not allowed her recent success to change her demeanor on the court.When Salazar delivered a big win for Syracuse against Florida State on March 7, the freshman cracked a smile as teammates rushed to congratulate her on the court.But Salazar wasn’t prepared to remain content with the victory over the Seminoles. The expectations would remain the same moving forward — to continue performing at a very high level during her first season with the Orange.“I’ve been playing since I was 10, and have traveled to many places,” Salazar said. “The experience of wanting to win, and being in that tough position (to win) makes you really want it.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAs Syracuse (2-8, 2-3 Atlantic Coast) travels to face Miami (Fla.) (12-2, 6-0) on Friday, Salazar is primed to continue rising as a reliable contributor. Her success with Maddie Kobelt in doubles, as well as her recent improvement in singles matches, has played a critical role in SU’s two victories against ranked teams.Regardless of the outcome, Salazar stays calm and collected and always reminds herself of the unpredictability of the game.“Sometimes you lose, and sometimes you’re lucky and you win,” Salazar said. “That’s how tennis goes.”With injuries to Aleah Marrow and Breanna Bachini, Salazar has embraced her increasing role with the team. In her victory against Florida State, she won both a singles and doubles match, a sign that her hard work was leading to success against ranked opponents.Head coach Shelley George acknowledged that Salazar has grown as a player due to the leadership around her, and is gaining the respect of her teammates through her recent success.“Valeria has great leadership there on the court with her,” George said. “Maddie is a senior, she’s been through all of this before. But Valeria’s got her own game. She can make her own shots as well.”Salazar has improved her development as a player while playing alongside Kobelt. While Kobelt has led the doubles pairing all season, she believes that Salazar has delivered on her end in the matches.“All season we’ve been playing together, and she has been rock solid,” Kobelt said. “She has done a really great job with composing herself and executing the right shots.”Salazar has excelled in SU’s rotation because of her willingness to take risks and do whatever is necessary to win matches. A recent example was her victory in the singles match against Florida State’s Kristina Schleich. Salazar had allowed a 5-2 lead in the final set to slip away.But her resiliency paid off as she rallied to win the next two points and secure a 7-5 victory.“I went for too much in that match point, but I had to do something,” she said. “I had to go out for all of my shots. I had to keep playing my game.”As Syracuse looks to earn its first road win of the season, Salazar believes she is very fortunate with her recent performances against quality teams in the ACC.And against the Hurricanes, she could be the difference-maker.Said Salazar: “I’m just very happy that I am able to be in this position. I have played many matches before, but this is a different atmosphere.” Comments Published on March 20, 2014 at 12:10 am Facebook Twitter Google+
