While the number of foreclosures is on the rise for a second year in a row, the amount of filings is no where near the late 2000s and are not uniform across the country, according to data from ATTOM. The data team at Realtor.com took a look at where foreclosures are happening the most and rising.

To make some sense of what’s going on with foreclosures, we ranked metropolitan areas with high and growing foreclosure rates by comparing June 2023 ATTOM data to May 2023 and June 2022 to see where the foreclosure rate is rising month over month and year over year. Then we ranked these metros based on the current foreclosure rate. We selected only one metro per state.

Foreclosure filings include default, lis pendens, trustee sale, foreclosure sale, and real estate-owned notices.
