Colorado Foreclosures: Sales and Filings Down Again

In line with all of the statistics we've been seeing on Denver homes for sale, the latest numbers for Colorado foreclosures show a decline in both filings and sales for the first four months of this year when compared to the same time period last year.

While foreclosures are not disappearing, there is a drastically lower number of both Colorado foreclosures and standard homes for sale. Number over the past months have indicated that overall inventory has decreased year-over-year by anywhere from 30-35%. This is causing prices to rise as buyers, especially in the sub $500k category, compete for homes. 

From the Colorado Division of Housing:

Both new foreclosure filings and foreclosure auction sales were down during the first four months of this year when compared to the same period last year. According to a report released Wednesday by the Colorado Division of Housing, foreclosure filings in Colorado’s metropolitan counties were down 1.0 percent for the first four months of 2012, comparing year over year, falling from 8,476 to 8,395.

Over the same period, foreclosure auction sales were down 29.0 percent, dropping from 6,177 to 4,387. For the month of April alone, foreclosure filings were up 7.3 percent from April 2011 to April 2012 while foreclosure auction sales fell 36.2 percent over the same period.

From March 2012 to April 2012, foreclosure filings fell 10.8 percent while foreclosure auction sales rose 6.1 percent. Since 2008, March and April have tended to be two of the most active months for new foreclosure filings in Colorado, with totals in both filings and auction sales tending to drop off in May.
