With a peak in 2010 when nearly 1.2 million homes were foreclosed on, over 7.7 million families lost their homes throughout the entire foreclosure crisis.
Dr. Frank Nothaft,Chief EconomistforCoreLogic,had this to say,
“The country experienced a wild ride in the mortgage market between 2008 and 2012, with the foreclosure peak occurring in 2010. As we look back over 10 years of the foreclosure crisis, we cannot ignore the connection between jobs and homeownership. A healthy economy is driven by jobs coupled with consumer confidence that usually leads to homeownership.”
Since the peak, foreclosures have been steadily on the decline by nearly 100,000 per year all the way through the end of 2016, as seen in the chart below.
If this trend continues, the country will be back to 2005 levels by the end of 2017.
As the economy continues to improve, and employment numbers increase, the number of completed foreclosures should continue to decrease.

"Heather helped me buy my first house and she made the whole experience way less stressful than it could have been. She is very knowledgeable and a very nice person. She had answers to all of my questions and if she didn't know the answer right away she was quick to get it. Even in my crises moments when I was second guessing about buying or what I was doing she was there to calm me down, help me out, and keep me headed in the right direction. I highly recommend her for anyone's future home needs."
