NJ Improving on Foreclosures

From therealestatebloggers.com/

10 States with Highest Foreclosure Rate October 2006

RealtyTrac has come out with their October 2006 numbers and the results are in. Colorado leads the way with once out of 337 homes in foreclosure. Vermont had the least amount of foreclosures in the country with only one home in foreclosure. Bet that guy has the neighbors talking for breaking the perfect streak. (Although still on the bottom 10, New Jersey is now trending towards a decreasing foreclosure market.)

The percentages are the change from October of 2005.

    Buying a house from the department of housing and urban development, more commonly known as HUD, can be a good way to get into your first home. Unfortunately, buying a HUD home is oftentimes looked down upon. However, for many it is a really big step and a sign of progress in their life. A person looking to buy a HUD home really should start by going to the HUD web site and following the links to see what properties are available in his or her town or whatever area they're looking to live in. Applying for a home loan is still necessary when buying a HUD home, unless you have enough cash to buy the house up front.
