U.S. PROPERTIES WITH FORECLOSURE FILINGS IN 2009

The report also shows that 2.21 percent of all U.S. housing units (one in 45) received at least one foreclosure filing during the year, up from 1.84 percent in 2008, 1.03 percent in 2007 and0.58 percent in 2006. Foreclosure filings were reported on 349,519 U.S. properties in December and foreclosureactivity in the fourth quarter decreased 7 percent from the third quarter.
The latest idea bubbling up in the world of real estate is the use of principal reductions to stem the foreclosure tide, the theory being that if we lower mortgage balances then homeowners will have smaller monthly payments and fewer foreclosures. Truth is, the only reason lenders will reduce principal balances is when it's to their advantage. Reducing principal balances will instantly produce big and hideous losses, something Lenders don't want but something lenders will accept if the probability of even bigger and more hideous losses from short sales and foreclosures can be avoided.

Faster Sales Coming For Foreclosure Buyers
Foreclosure buyers got a Christmas Eve goodie from Fannie Mae, a new strategy that's likely to make foreclosure purchasing very much quicker. The catch? A bunch of lenders are about to be very unhappy. With the growing number of distressed properties there's now a substantial “foreclosure discount” in most markets. What were once tolerable and controlled losses are today steep and sharp declines that leave lender red ink everywhere. The question for loan owners is this: Is there anyway to make such lender losses smaller? The answer, as we shall see, turns out to be good news for foreclosure buyers.
