Nationally, the foreclosure rate eased from 2.8% in June of 2011 to 2.7% by December with 113 of the 163 markets surveyed by NAR Research experiencing a decline in their foreclosure rate over this period.
While the improvement was widespread, the largest aggregate declines occurred in markets where the rate had ballooned in 2009 and 2010.
Markets in Florida and Nevada dominated the top 10 in declines, but Seattle and Spokane (Washington) also made the top 10 despite having a small overall foreclosure rate, which suggests stronger proportionate improvements and potential for robust recoveries.
Falling foreclosure rates reflect stronger employment conditions and consumer confidence as well as record low mortgage rates which are driving additional home sales. Efforts to improve the short sale process and modification programs have also had an impact.

"Trenton was just the opposite and exceeded my expectations above and beyond all others. He had more knowledge, skills, and expertise then any of the agents I met or worked with that had several years of experience. He acted quickly and in the same day of us speaking, he found EXACTLY what I was looking in the first list that consisted of two homes. I liked one of the two homes, and he made time the next day to show me the home. I loved it and made an offer immediately, which was accepted three days later...on my birthday. I closed 35 days later, only because the Seller's needed more time to find their new home. "
