Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Washington 0.7 homes are foreclosed (per 10,000). This is lower than the Washington Metro value of 2.1 and also lower than the national value of 4.0

Mortgage delinquency is the first step in the foreclosure process. This is when a homeowner fails to make a mortgage payment. The percent of delinquent mortgages in Washington is 10.2%, which is higher than the national value of 6.9%. With U.S. home values having fallen by more than 20% nationally from their peak in 2007 until their trough in late 2011, many homeowners are now underwater on their mortgages, meaning they owe more than their home is worth. The percent of Washington homeowners underwater on their mortgage is 12.1%, which is lower than Washington Metro at 19.3%.
