Foreclosure Cancellations Continue to Climb

Short sales and loan modifications are not the only explanation

Discovery Bay, CA, May 11, 2010 ~ ForeclosureRadar (www.foreclosureradar.com), the only website that tracks every California foreclosure and provides daily auction updates, issued its monthly California Foreclosure Report for April 2010. Foreclosure filings were down in April for the first time since the beginning of the year. Despite the decline in filings, the inventory of properties in preforeclosure or scheduled for sale only dipped slightly as the drop in filings were offset by an increase in the time to foreclose. Cancellations continue to climb, up more than 32 percent from the beginning of the year. The number of properties sold to 3rd parties also continues to climb, helped again this month by slightly better discounts.
 
“The steady rise in cancellations leads us to believe that loan modifications and short sales are gaining traction” says Sean O’Toole, Founder and CEO of ForeclosureRadar.com. “I’d caution, however, that cancellations also occur due to filing errors and extended postponements, which require the Notice of Trustee Sale to be re-filed. In fact, 14.6 percent of new Notice of Trustee filings in April were on previously cancelled foreclosures.”
