Rochester MN Foreclosed Homes For Sale
Although the foreclosure process is something that’s been around for as long as we’ve had mortgages, most Americans were unfamiliar with the concept until the Great Recession hit. With the recession, home values plummeted $6 trillion, or almost 30 percent of their value.
To top it off, almost 9 million Americans lost their jobs during this time period. Unable to pay their bills and with no home equity to tap into, they quickly sunk underwater in their mortgages. In fact, experts estimate that almost one-fourth of American homeowners had mortgage balances that exceeded the value of their homes.
Lenders foreclosed on these borrowers at unprecedented rates. Today, Minnesota’s foreclosure rate has dwindled to 0.05 percent. Home values are rising and many Rochester homeowners have regained the equity they lost. But not all homeowners are breathing a sigh of relief. Household wealth is still at rock bottom and some Rochester homeowners aren’t making as much as they did pre-recession. Every month they struggle to pay the bills, the mortgage included.
So, yes, we have fewer foreclosures in Rochester than we did in years past, but they haven’t completely disappeared.
