Foreclosures Down in Some of Michigan’s Largest Counties
The Michigan Messenger’s Todd Heywood ran the newest foreclosure numbers from a selection of Michigan counties and found some surprises. In Wayne County, home to Detroit, foreclosures were down substantially in May and June over the same period last year. But the real shocker was in Genesee County, where foreclosures were down by nearly 75 percent.
Genesee County’s deputy register of deeds, Shannon Cooper, was surprised when she reviewed the numbers for Michigan Messenger. Cooper found that in May and June last year, the county, home to Flint, had 709 foreclosure filings. In May and June of this year, there were only 183.
However, it wasn’t all good news. Ingham County, home to Lansing, reported a 20 percent increase in May and June over last year.
