California led the nation in total foreclosure filings and reported one filing for every 88 households. Nevada and Florida followed. The state had 148,147 filings on 94,772 properties, an increase in filings of 36 percent from the previous quarter and nearly four times the year-ago period. All but five states – Kentucky, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Dakota and Utah – reported a year-over-year increase in foreclosure filings, which include notices of default, auction sale notices or bank repossessions, RealtyTrac said. The total number of filings reported for the nation in the third quarter reached 635,159, up 99.5 percent from the year-ago quarter and up 30 percent from the second quarter of this year. The number of U.S. homes in foreclosure more than doubled in the third quarter, a surge that analysts said likely will drive already weak prices even lower in the hardest-hit areas. While that amounts to good news for would-be buyers, it spells trouble for builders with projects languishing on the market and for other homeowners desperate to unload property to avoid foreclosure. “A wave of foreclosures is not going to be good for the broader market, and it will contribute to the weakness in pricing,” said Raphael Bostic, associate director of the Lusk Center for Real Estate at the USC. A total of 446,726 homes nationwide were targeted by some sort of foreclosure activity from July to September, up more than 100 percent from 223,233 properties in the year-ago period, Irvine-based RealtyTrac Inc. said Thursday.
