Foreclosures Soar In Illinois

High foreclosure rates were supposed to be a thing of the past. They belong to the period of The Great Recession when foreclosure rates in some cities approached one in every 500 houses. As unemployment rose to 10% then, people often could not pay off mortgages, and adjustable-rate mortgages pushed payments to unsustainable levels. But, echoing that past, foreclosure rates have risen sharply in some states and cities. Illinois is at the center of the problem.

ATTOM’s May 2023 U.S. Foreclosure Market Report showed there were 35,196 U.S. properties with foreclosure filings, up 14% from May the year before. This means one in every 3,967 housing units had a foreclosure filing during the month. Rob Barber, CEO at ATTOM, said, “The recent increase in foreclosure filings nationwide indicates a trend that has been observed throughout the year, and what we have expected to occur.”

In Illinois, the figure was one in every 2,144 housing units. It was followed by Maryland at one in every 2,203 and New Jersey at one in every 2,257.

Across America’s largest 223 metros with populations of over 200,000, the number was highest in Lakeland, FL at one in every 1,361. Elkhart, IN was next at one in 1,621, Cleveland at one in every 1,622, Palm Bay, FL at one in every 1,647, and Ocala FL at one in every 1,671.

According to the Census, Lakeland has a population of 115,401. The median household income is $55,029, which is well below the national figure. The poverty rate of 14.4% is higher than the national number.

Interestingly, during The Great Recession, the states with the housing markets that were hammered the most were Florida and Nevada. In Florida’s case, maybe that will happen again.
