Foreclosures LOWEST since "Great Recession"!

This is excellent news!!!  Per National Association of Realtors, the number of homes that have been foreclosed upon in the past 12 months is the lowest we have seen in recent years.  It is good news for the real estate market, yes, but even better news for homeowners.  The number of home that have actually been foreclosed is down 18% April 2014 from April 2013.

Another highlight is that Illinois is no longer in the "Top 5" for highest number of foreclosures.  It's definitely great to see less people forced out of thier homes!
