foreclosures at new low

U.S. FORECLOSURES FALL TO LOWEST LEVEL SINCE JULY 2006
U.S. properties with foreclosure filings — default notices, scheduled auctions, and bank repossessions — fell 19 percent in the first half of 2014 from the previous six months and were down 23 percent from the first half of 2013, RealtyTrac reported.  One in 214 homes had at least one foreclosure filing in the first six months of the year.

The report also includes new foreclosure activity data from June, when a total of 107,194 U.S. properties had a foreclosure filing, down 2 percent from the previous month and down 16 percent from a year ago to the lowest level since July 2006, before the housing price bubble burst. Total foreclosure activity in June was the lowest since the housing bubble burst in August 2006 in 10 states, including Texas, Georgia, Colorado, Tennessee, Arizona, and Nevada.
