According to foreclosure tracking company RealtyTrac, Washington’s statewide foreclosure rate for August of one foreclosure for every 413 housing units was 14th worst among the 50 states and the District of Columbia (same as July). Note that RealtyTrac’s definition of “in foreclosure” is much broader than what we are using, and includes Notice of Default, Lis Pendens, Notice of Trustee Sale, and Real Estate Owned. If you are about to go into foreclosure know your options before doing so, that’s where my team can help.
