Indianapolis, Atlanta, Dallas, Memphis and Denver Top List of Nation's Ten Highest Metropolitan Foreclosure Rates

Sun and Rust Belt Cities Dominate Remainder of Nation's Top 10

New Orleans and Boston Among Cities With Lowest Foreclosure Rates



May 23, 2006, 01:00 ET from RealtyTrac Inc.

    IRVINE, Calif., May 23 /PRNewswire/ -- RealtyTrac(TM)
 (www.realtytrac.com), the leading online marketplace for foreclosure
 properties, today released its first annual 2006 U.S. Metropolitan
 Foreclosure Market Report, which ranks the foreclosure rates of the top 100
 metropolitan areas. This year's report, based on data captured over the
 first quarter of 2006, shows Indianapolis, Atlanta and Dallas having the
 highest foreclosure rates among the nation's largest 100 metropolitan
 areas. Cities in the Sun Belt and Rust Belt generally had the highest
 foreclosure rates in the first quarter of 2006, while cities in the
 Northeast and Gulf Coast documented some of the lowest.
     RealtyTrac publishes the largest national database of pre-foreclosure
 and foreclosure properties, with more than 600,000 properties in more than
 2,500 counties across the country, and is the foreclosure data provider to
 MSN Real Estate, Yahoo! Real Estate, AOL Real Estate and Knight Ridder
 Online.
     "Indianapolis narrowly edged out Atlanta as the city with the highest
 foreclosure rate in Q1," said James J. Saccacio, chief executive officer of
 RealtyTrac. "Most of the cities with the highest foreclosure rates have
 above-average unemployment rates and below-average home price appreciation.
 Unemployment is a major reason why homeowners stop making mortgage
 payments, and slow home price appreciation can make it harder for
 homeowners in default to refinance or sell to stop foreclosure."
     Saccacio added that other economic factors such as decreasing
 affordability, rising interest rates and speculative buying can also fuel
 foreclosures. He cited Jacksonville, Fla. and Las Vegas Nevada, both of
 which documented foreclosure rates in the top 10 despite below-average
 unemployment and above-average home price appreciation.
     "Because of the high home prices in many areas, more home buyers have
 stretched themselves financially with creative, and often risky financing
 that involves adjustable interest rates, interest only and negative
 amortization loans" he said. "Home buyers with these types of loans are
 more susceptible to default and foreclosure when interest rates move
 higher."

     Indianapolis documented a foreclosure rate of one foreclosure for every
 69 households, while Atlanta's foreclosure rate was one foreclosure for
 every 70 households. Other top-10 foreclosure rates ranged from one
 foreclosure for every 99 households in Dallas-Fort Worth to one foreclosure
 for every 140 households in Canton, Ohio and Las Vegas.
     The nation's largest metropolitan area, New York City, documented a
 foreclosure rate -- one foreclosure for every 434 households -- that ranked
 59th among the top MSAs. First-quarter foreclosures were even less common
 in the New England states of Providence, R.I. and Boston, both of which
 registered foreclosure rates among the nation's 10 lowest.
     Several Gulf Coast cities -- New Orleans, Mobile, Ala., Baton Rouge,
 La. and Jackson, Miss. -- also documented foreclosure rates among the
 nation's 10 lowest. Many defaulted properties in the Gulf Coast region are
 not entering foreclosure because of an extended foreclosure moratorium
 imposed by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in counties
 affected by Hurricane Katrina.
     The RealtyTrac 2006 U.S. Metropolitan Foreclosure Market Report
 provides the total number of properties entering some stage of foreclosure
 in each of the nation's 100 largest Metropolitan Statistical Areas.
 RealtyTrac's report includes properties in all three phases of foreclosure:
 Pre-foreclosures -- Notice of Default (NOD) and Lis Pendens (LIS);
 Foreclosures -- Notice of Trustee Sale and Notice of Foreclosure Sale (NTS
 and NFS); and Real Estate Owned, or REO properties (that have been
 re-purchased by a bank).

    IRVINE, Calif., May 23 /PRNewswire/ -- RealtyTrac(TM)
 (www.realtytrac.com), the leading online marketplace for foreclosure
 properties, today released its first annual 2006 U.S. Metropolitan
 Foreclosure Market Report, which ranks the foreclosure rates of the top 100
 metropolitan areas. This year's report, based on data captured over the
 first quarter of 2006, shows Indianapolis, Atlanta and Dallas having the
 highest foreclosure rates among the nation's largest 100 metropolitan
 areas. Cities in the Sun Belt and Rust Belt generally had the highest
 foreclosure rates in the first quarter of 2006, while cities in the
 Northeast and Gulf Coast documented some of the lowest.
     RealtyTrac publishes the largest national database of pre-foreclosure
 and foreclosure properties, with more than 600,000 properties in more than
 2,500 counties across the country, and is the foreclosure data provider to
 MSN Real Estate, Yahoo! Real Estate, AOL Real Estate and Knight Ridder
 Online.
     "Indianapolis narrowly edged out Atlanta as the city with the highest
 foreclosure rate in Q1," said James J. Saccacio, chief executive officer of
 RealtyTrac. "Most of the cities with the highest foreclosure rates have
 above-average unemployment rates and below-average home price appreciation.
 Unemployment is a major reason why homeowners stop making mortgage
 payments, and slow home price appreciation can make it harder for
 homeowners in default to refinance or sell to stop foreclosure."
     Saccacio added that other economic factors such as decreasing
 affordability, rising interest rates and speculative buying can also fuel
 foreclosures. He cited Jacksonville, Fla. and Las Vegas Nevada, both of
 which documented foreclosure rates in the top 10 despite below-average
 unemployment and above-average home price appreciation.
     "Because of the high home prices in many areas, more home buyers have
 stretched themselves financially with creative, and often risky financing
 that involves adjustable interest rates, interest only and negative
 amortization loans" he said. "Home buyers with these types of loans are
 more susceptible to default and foreclosure when interest rates move
 higher."

     Indianapolis documented a foreclosure rate of one foreclosure for every
 69 households, while Atlanta's foreclosure rate was one foreclosure for
 every 70 households. Other top-10 foreclosure rates ranged from one
 foreclosure for every 99 households in Dallas-Fort Worth to one foreclosure
 for every 140 households in Canton, Ohio and Las Vegas.
     The nation's largest metropolitan area, New York City, documented a
 foreclosure rate -- one foreclosure for every 434 households -- that ranked
 59th among the top MSAs. First-quarter foreclosures were even less common
 in the New England states of Providence, R.I. and Boston, both of which
 registered foreclosure rates among the nation's 10 lowest.
     Several Gulf Coast cities -- New Orleans, Mobile, Ala., Baton Rouge,
 La. and Jackson, Miss. -- also documented foreclosure rates among the
 nation's 10 lowest. Many defaulted properties in the Gulf Coast region are
 not entering foreclosure because of an extended foreclosure moratorium
 imposed by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in counties
 affected by Hurricane Katrina.
     The RealtyTrac 2006 U.S. Metropolitan Foreclosure Market Report
 provides the total number of properties entering some stage of foreclosure
 in each of the nation's 100 largest Metropolitan Statistical Areas.
 RealtyTrac's report includes properties in all three phases of foreclosure:
 Pre-foreclosures -- Notice of Default (NOD) and Lis Pendens (LIS);
 Foreclosures -- Notice of Trustee Sale and Notice of Foreclosure Sale (NTS
 and NFS); and Real Estate Owned, or REO properties (that have been
 re-purchased by a bank).
