New Foreclosure Inventory in U.S. Rises Nearly Fifty Percent in March

RISMEDIA, April 7 – Some 28,190 new foreclosed residential properties were listed for sale in the U.S. during March 2005, reports Foreclosure.com.

The number represents an increase of 50 percent from February 2005. The total number of U.S. residential foreclosure properties available for sale in the U.S. during the month of March was 80,757, an increase of 10 percent from February.

"New foreclosure inventory rose in 47 states in March. This signifies a national trend in foreclosure inventory and can likely be attributed to the rise in interest rates during the latter half of 2004, and a slowdown in the trend of rising home values in the fourth quarter of 2004," said Brad Geisen, president and CEO, Foreclosure.com. "Foreclosures are most prevalent in areas of the country where home values are not rising, such as Ohio, Texas, South Carolina and Michigan. However, if the combination of rising interest rates and dropping home values continues, foreclosure inventory will likely continue to rise across the country."
