Foreclosures Continue to Decline

July 03, 1994|Special to The Times

Lending institutions are starting fewer foreclosure proceedings on Southern California homeowners than they were a year ago, indicating that much of the economic distress caused by the drop in real estate values has worked its way through the market, a real estate information service reported.

Lenders started foreclosure proceedings on 7,259 Southland homeowners in May, down 3.1% from 7,495 in April and down 14.8% from 8,521 in May a year ago, Dataquick Information Systems of La Jolla reported.

Year-to-date figures show that foreclosure activity is down in Los Angeles, San Diego and Ventura counties.
