June Foreclosure Numbers Show Steady Improvement
In June, the state saw fewer than 150 foreclosure deeds filed--the first time that's happened since before the recession. That's according to a new report released by the New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority. Foreclosure deeds in June were down 15 percent from May, and 30 percent from June of last year. Foreclosure auction notices also were also down more than 40 percent from June of 2013. Meanwhile, the mortgage delinquency rate saw a more modest decline, and is still above the pre-recession rate. New Hampshire Housing credits the declines to "slow but steady improvements in the housing market and overall economy."
