Foreclosure Monitor: Signs Point to Long Recovery Road

Monday, June 20th, 2011
By Tim H. Davis

Foreclosure Monitor is designed to help public officials determine how best to use their resources to help homeowners and neighborhoods hard-hit by foreclosure. MHP issues Foreclosure Monitor quarterly).

BOSTON, June 13, 2011 --- When monthly foreclosure statistics dipped in February 2011, Foreclosure Monitor decided to dig into the numbers to see what caused this and to analyze just when we might see a full real estate turnaround.

In a report released Friday, Foreclosure Monitor found that February's dip was a one-time event similar to other temporary slowdowns and that the long-term distress and economic data point indicate that a full turnaround won't begin until at least 2014.

In addition to this report, Foreclosure Monitor also released its quarterly report of distress activity by community, zip code and census tract. The news here is that while distress continues to shift into suburban and rural areas, Gateway cities like Lawrence, Lowell, Chelsea and New Bedford are seeing significant declines in foreclosure activity.

What is Foreclosure Monitor?

Foreclosure Monitor is an ongoing effort by MHP to give policy leaders and local officials the latest data on how foreclosures and distressed properties are impacting communities and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Foreclosure Monitor is able to provide this information through the CHAPA/Warren Group distressed property database. For previous reports, check out Foreclosure Monitor.
