Las Vegas, Cape Coral, Merced Foreclosure Rates Highest Among Major Metro Areas in 2009 According to RealtyTrac

Top 20 Cities Are From California, Florida, Nevada and Arizona; Utah, Illinois, Oregon, Idaho Cities Indicate Foreclosure Problem Is Spreading

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - January 28, 2010) - RealtyTrac® (www.realtytrac.com), the leading online marketplace for foreclosure properties, today released its Year-End 2009 Metropolitan Foreclosure Market Report, which shows that cities in four Sun Belt states accounted for all top 20 foreclosure rates in 2009 among metro areas with a population of 200,000 or more, but foreclosure activity showed signs of spreading into previously insulated areas as unemployment became more of a driving factor.

California accounted for nine of the top 20 metro foreclosure rates, followed by Florida with eight, Nevada with two and Arizona with one. The highest-ranked metro area outside of those four states was in Boise City-Nampa, Idaho, which ranked No. 24 with 4.66 percent of its housing units receiving at least one foreclosure notice in 2009.

"While it was expected that cities from states with the highest levels of foreclosure activity would top the charts, there is evidence that we're entering a new wave of foreclosures, driven more by unemployment and economic hardship than what we've seen over the past few years," said James J. Saccacio, chief executive officer of RealtyTrac. "Areas like Provo, Utah; Fayetteville, Ark.; Portland, Ore.; and Rockford, Ill., all posted foreclosure rates above the U.S. average in 2009. And markets like Honolulu, Minneapolis and Seattle saw foreclosure activity increase at more than twice the national pace over the past 12 months -- although all three of those markets still had 2009 foreclosure rates that were at or below the U.S. average."

Top 10 metro foreclosure rates

Las Vegas posted the nation's highest metro foreclosure rate for the year, with more than 12 percent of its housing units receiving a foreclosure notice in 2009 -- more than five times the national average. Las Vegas reported a quarter-over-quarter decline in foreclosure activity in the fourth quarter -- as did all the other metro areas with foreclosure rates ranking among the top 10 for 2009.

With 11.87 percent of its housing units receiving a foreclosure notice in 2009, Cape Coral-Fort Myers, Fla. documented the second highest metro foreclosure rate. Other Florida cities in the top 10 were Orlando-Kissimmee at No. 7 (8.17 percent), Port St. Lucie at No. 9 (7.58 percent), and Miami-Fort Lauderdale-Pompano Beach at No. 10 (7.16 percent).

Merced, Calif., registered the nation's third highest metro foreclosure rate, with more than 10 percent of its housing units receiving a foreclosure notice in 2009. Other California cities in the top 10 were Riverside-San Bernardino-Ontario at No. 4 (8.80 percent), Stockton at No. 5 (8.62 percent), and Modesto at No. 6 (8.53 percent).

The Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale metro area in Arizona documented the nation's eighth highest metro foreclosure rate in 2009, with more than 8 percent of its housing units receiving a foreclosure notice during the year.

Report methodology

The RealtyTrac U.S. Foreclosure Market Report provides a count of the total number of properties with at least one foreclosure filing entered into the RealtyTrac database during the year for metropolitan statistical areas with a population of 200,000 or more based on Census bureau estimates. Some foreclosure filings entered into the database during the year may have been recorded in previous years. 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). If more than one foreclosure document is received for a property during the year, only the most recent filing is counted in the report.
