DS News recently reported on the latest ATTOM Data Solutions foreclosure activity data, which indicated that the number of homes in foreclosure continued to drop in November. Further, the data showed that the 86,561 U.S. properties with foreclosure filings in November marked a decline of 18 percent from October and 17 percent from a year ago.

The report found that there were a little more than 35,000 new foreclosure filings in November, which was also down 17 percent compared to last year. November was the 17th straight month new filings decreased.

ATTOM Data Solutions found that 32 states experienced a drop in foreclosure activity from the year prior, including many of the states with consistently high foreclosure rates. Despite this good news, there are still states that are experiencing high levels of foreclosure filings–many of whom has been for quite some time now.

For example, New Jersey, this month’s state with the highest number or foreclosure filings, was not only the second highest state last month, but also the second highest state a year ago. Additionally, Maryland, this month’s fifth highest state for foreclosure filings, was the highest state a year ago.

New Mexico increased its number of foreclosure filings greatly, moving from the No. 14 spot last month and No. 22 a year prior to the No. 9 spot according to the latest data.
