Moody's Analytics and RealtyTrac® have partnered to create the most trustworthy and authoritative foreclosure data available for forecasting of U.S. house prices/performance of consumer loans regionally. RealtyTrac® Foreclosures allows for forecasting of house prices and performance of consumer loans regionally using both flow measures (starts) and inventory counts at the aggregate level for every stage of foreclosure, preforeclosure, auction and bank-owned.
Forecasts are available for inventories and starts for three stages of foreclosure - In Process, REO (real-estate owned) and Total Properties - at the national, regional, state and metro levels. Forecasts and data are updated monthly.
RealtyTrac® Foreclosures consists of available inventories (in foreclosure on the last day of the month) as well as starts (properties added in the month)
The activity series is seasonally adjusted down to the county level. Foreclosure rates, the number of foreclosures per 1,000 households, is available down to the county level.
