Florida Leads the Nation in Foreclosures
Florida, long the nation's leader in foreclosures, remains at the top of two lists when it comes to evaluating the ongoing impact of the foreclosure crisis.
Florida remains at the top of the list of states with the highest foreclosure rates, with one out of every 58 homes in the foreclosure process in the Sunshine State. The rate is declining, though; in South Florida, new filings fell by 17% from June, 2012.
Also, Florida boasts nine out of the top 10 cities in the nation with the highest foreclosure rates – led by Jacksonville. Jacksonville has one out of every 230 housing units in foreclosure, which leads the nation in terms of metro areas with over 200,000 people.
