Be aware that most of the graphs above are based on broad county-wide data that is available through an easy search of King County and Snohomish County public records. If you have stats you’d like to see in the preview, drop a line in the comments and I’ll see what I can do.
Trustee Deeds grew up 13 percent.
As the “ official ” information is released from several sources, stay tuned later this month a for detailed look at each one of those metrics.
Deeds in Snohomish fell 5 per cent month-over-month (versus a 1 percent decline in precisely the same period a year) and were down 18 percent from a year earlier.
Foreclosure notices in King County were up 12 percent and Snohomish County foreclosure notices were up 23 percent from last year. These gains appear large in percentage terms since the amounts are so low, but the increase represents only 10 additional foreclosures in each county in comparison to the previous year.
Sales in King County fell 5 percent between November and December (a year ago they dropped 4 percent over the same period), and so were down 22 percent year-over-year.

Here’s the snapshot of the data as far back as my advice goes, using the latest, high, and low values emphasized for each series:
This ’s another step of foreclosures for King County, looking at Trustee Deeds, that’s the kind of document filed with the county when a home is actually repossessed by the bank through the trustee auction process. Be aware there are different ways for your bank to repossess a house that result in files being filed, such as if a borrower turns in the ” that is keys and documents a “ Deed. ”
Here’s check out Snohomish County Deeds, but remember the Snohomish County documents Warranty Deeds (regular earnings ) and Trustee Deeds (bank foreclosure repossessions) together under the group of “Deeds (except QCDS),” so this chart isn’t quite as good a measure of plain vanilla earnings as the Warranty Deed only data we have in King County.
Hit the jump to the foreclosure charts.
It’s s pretty much the same story we’ve seen How many house sales is falling and the number of homes on the market is currently climbing a long time. Foreclosures are still rare.
