Foreclosure Rate Reports & Graphics

Because of its devastating impact on a household’s finances in addition to displacing families from their homes, the foreclosure rate is an important measure of financial distress. 10.9 million homes went into foreclosure between 2007 and 2011, according to the Center for Responsible Lending. When combined with the percentage of delinquent mortgage loans, this measure can paint a broad picture of which states have been most severely affected by the foreclosure crisis.
