Home Foreclosures Rise in Kansas and Missouri, Counter to National Trend

Posted on May 1, 2015 at 12:00pm by

Researchers from Realtytrac, a company that tracks national housing trends, have reported that home foreclosures in both Missouri and Kansas are much higher this quarter than they were during the same quarter in 2014. In Missouri, home foreclosures had risen 37 percent compared to this time in 2014, with nearly 4,467 homes facing foreclosure. Kansas saw a 38.3 percent rise in foreclosure actions. Over 1,600 homes faced foreclosure this quarter.

Despite the increase in foreclosures in these states, national numbers were down, with up to an 8 percent decrease in foreclosures. According to RealtyTrac, these numbers may look grim, but they are most likely the result of many long standing foreclosure cases reaching their conclusion. It is likely that these high numbers will continue for several months, but will eventually come back down towards the end of 2015.
