According to a company that monitors foreclosures around the country, there was a 14 percent increase during the second quarter for homes that received their first default notice. This is perhaps a reaction to the lag last year in which many lending institutions were forced to put a stop to foreclosures thanks to the “robo-signing” debacle. Now that these banks have been given the green light to continue, these institutions are being more aggressive about defaulted loans.
When compared to last year, lenders took back 27 percent less properties during the second quarter. In total, banks could repossess as many as 800,000 properties this year thanks to foreclosure proceedings.
