DataQuick revealed its monthly Property Intelligence Report (PIR), showing that foreclosures have decreased in 31 of the 42 reporting markets over the last month, quarter, and year. Along with a general decrease in foreclosures across the measured markets, DataQuick reports that January home price growth has leveled off in nearly all markets, even turning negative in others.According to the report, 12 counties have experienced more than a 50 percent drop in foreclosures, including the markets of Los Angeles, Denver, and Washington, D.C."While indicators such as home price growth have fluctuated somewhat with each report, decreased foreclosure numbers have become a constant occurrence as the market slowly recovers," said DataQuick’s VP of analytics, Gordon Crawford, Ph.D. "However, though most markets are seeing month-to-month decline in foreclosures, those counties where foreclosure activity is actually growing are experiencing rapid foreclosure increases.
