Recently, a report has been published by the real estate data firm, The Warren Group which keeps track on the different foreclosure activities that are going on across the nation.
In October 2010, only one petition of foreclosure was filed for Sharon town, but this year in the same month, not a single petition was filed for the area. However, the data in that report revealed that although the number of fresh petitions was nil, foreclosure activity has moved up to one, which was also nil the previous year.
The figures in the report reflect a clear picture of the foreclosure activities that are going on across the state. In Massachusetts, the number of petitions increased by 5.9% in October, which were 1,193 in October 2010 and stood at 1,127 in October 2011. The number of activities in the region moved up to 756 from 557 homes showing a 35.7% increase.
CEO of The Warren Group, Timothy Warren said that the increase in the number of foreclosure deeds with a minimum number of petitions can be a precursor to the end of this foreclosure crisis.
He said, “A rise in foreclosures is troubling for distressed homeowners, but in this case, it's a positive signal that the backlog of foreclosures on the banks’ books is working through the system. The real estate market cannot fully recover until foreclosures have been dealt with one way or another. ”
The statistical report of October, 2010 and October, 2011 of the foreclosures in different towns of the area is mentioned below.
