Also last week:

On New Year’s Eve, the last day of a very bad year, 135 foreclosed homes were added to 2007’s “sold at auction” total by the County Sheriff; and

197 new foreclosure cases were filed in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court… the last 33 foreclosures of 2007, and the first 164 of 2008.

(If you’re looking for straws in the wind, 164 new foreclosures in the first three business days of 2008 is just six fewer than were filed in the same three days of 2007.)


Over 15,000 foreclosures filed in Cuyahoga County in 2007

January 2, 2008

There were 15,297 foreclosure cases initiated in Cuyahoga Common Pleas Court in 2007, compared to 14,078 in 2006, according to the Court’s online docket.

At the other end of the foreclosure process, 10,160 sheriff’s deeds (completed foreclosures) were filed with the County Recorder in 2007, compared to 5,517 in 2006.

According to the 2000 Census, Cuyahoga County has about 430,000 residential structures, including 335,000 single-family homes. So the number of foreclosure cases filed in the last two years equalled about 7% of the county’s total housing stock.

Christmas Eve at the Justice Center: According to the Sheriff’s online database, after various last minute withdrawals a total of 169 foreclosed properties were still scheduled for auction this morning in the Justice Center Auditorium. (That’s not counting a million-dollar package of thirty parcels, including some unsold houses, at the Ashbury Towers development site at West 53rd and Walworth.)

Among this morning’s biggest Grinches… excuse me, plaintiffs: US Bank with 28 sales, Wells Fargo with 23, Deutsche Bank with 19, and JP Morgan Chase with 12.

To all these wonderful folks and their busy, busy lawyers, here’s hoping you get home from the office in time for a lovely holiday.

And that you have a home to go home to.
