CoreLogic announced on Thursday September 16th, 2010 the inaugural release of its U.S. Housing and Marketing Trends report, a bi-monthly research report on housing sales, valuations, negative equity and foreclosure activity.
The report shows that distressed sales are at a seven month low, primarily due to the tax credit. Now that the tax credit extension has expired the distressed sales are expected to rise in the fall.
What are distressed sales? That includes, REO’s (real estate owned, which is a foreclosure) and short sales.

  • In June the distressed sales share fell 24% of the overall sales. This is a decline from June of 2009, which peaked at 35%.
  • As of June 2010, Las Vegas (61%) and Riverside (59%) continue to lead the nation in distressed sales for the largest 25 metropolitan markets.
  • Phoenix (53%), Sacramento (51%) and Orlando (50%) were the only other markets where distressed sales accounted for the majority of home sales activity.
  • Lowest distressed sale share included: Nassau (5%) and New York City (8%) followed by Baltimore (18%), Seattle (19%) and Minneapolis (19%).

The report also provides data on national, state, and top 25 cities on home prices, negative equity, delinquencies, pre-foreclosure filings and auction filings.  Download report at
