US Foreclosure filings (default notices, scheduled auctions and bank repos) were 321,480 U.S. properties during May 2009. Total foreclosures from April 2009, however, decreased 6%.
One in every 398 U.S. housing units received a foreclosure filing in May, the third highest month on record.
RealtyTrac said they expect REO activity to “spike in the coming months as foreclosure delays and moratoria implemented by various state laws come to an end.”
