Number of Foreclosure-Bound Homes Down in L.A. County

In Sierra Madre, 11 homes are listed in pre-foreclosure as of Tuesday.

The number of Los Angeles County homes slipping toward foreclosure dropped by 6.1 percent in the second quarter of 2012, compared to the same period last year, a real estate information service reported today.

In the first quarter of 2012 the numbers of homes slipping toward foreclosure dropped by 18 percent.

Lenders sent default notices to 10,568 homeowners in Los Angeles County in the second quarter, down from the 2011 second-quarter total of 11,250, according to San Diego-based DataQuick.

According to RealtyTrac website, there are 11 homes in pre-foreclosure in Sierra Madre as of Tuesday.

In Orange County, default notices were sent to 3,599 homeowners, down 2.9 percent from the 2011 second-quarter total of 3,705.

Statewide, default notices were sent to 54,615 homeowners in the second quarter of the year, DataQuick reported. That was a 2.9 percent drop from the previous quarter's 56,258 notices and down 3.6 percent from the second quarter in 2011, when 56,633 default notices were sent.

"The foreclosure process has always been the sanitation department of the housing sector,'' said John Walsh, DataQuick president. "It's where financial distress is processed. The question is whether these lower (default notice) numbers mean that there's less distress to process, or if we're just seeing distress get processed at a slower pace.''

Default notices do not always lead to a home foreclosure, according to DataQuick. Some homeowners emerge from the foreclosure process by bringing their payments current, refinancing or selling the home.
