Forecloosure Activity Changes, but Reno/Sparks Still in Top Ten

Some of the nations leading foreclosure markets have a decrease in foreclosure activity, but the Reno Sparks area is still number nine nationwide, according to RealyTrac.  Rising unemployment and mortgage resets are blamed for the changes.

New foreclosure hot spots flare up
Among the top 50 metro foreclosure rates, the three biggest year-over-year increases were in Boise City-Nampa, Idaho, and Provo-Orem and Salt Lake City in Utah. In several states the largest increases were posted in cities not previously a focal point for foreclosure activity. The Chico metro area posted the biggest year-over-year increase in California, with foreclosure activity up 98 percent from the third quarter of 2008. The medium-sized metro about 100 miles north of Sacramento had a 12.8 percent unemployment rate in August, above the state and national averages.

A similar trend was seen in cities like Reno-Sparks, Nev., with an 80 percent year-over-year increase in foreclosure activity, Prescott, Ariz., with a 77 percent increase, Jacksonville, Fla., with a 64 percent increase, Rockford, Ill., with a 64 percent increase, and Lansing-East Lansing, Mich., with a 41 percent increase.

Other areas leading the nation in foreclosures include Las Vegas, Merced, CA and the Coral Gables, FL area.
