From my personal experience, they are definitely up this month, but it’s a moving target.
According to some real, hard numbers from RealtyTrac, they are up in Utah for the month of October 2014.
RealtyTrac will give you a “UTAH REAL ESTATE STATISTICS & FORECLOSURE TRENDS SUMMARY,” which breaks down the real estate market by various categories. According to their site, “In October, the number of properties that received a foreclosure filing in UT was 60% higher than the previous month and 27% lower than the same time last year.” So it’s good and bad. We have less foreclosures this year than last year, but they suddenly jumped in October.
What I love about RealtyTrac is that it will break it down in charts that actually make sense to me. For instance, you can get a county by county breakdown like this:
1 in every 957
Top 5 Counties
Piute 1 in every 428
Tooele 1 in every 500
Box Elder 1 in every 644
Wasatch 1 in every 664
Sevier 1 in every 701
Or even a graph showing the number of foreclosures by month like this:
