New Foreclosure Filings Up Almost 200%

Act Now


(May 17, 2022) It’s been about ten months since the foreclosure moratorium for federally backed mortgage loans expired on July 31, 2021, and foreclosure activity has been on the rise ever since. Right now, new foreclosure filings are up 188% from a year ago. Illinois in particular has been among the hardest-hit states, with the highest foreclosure rate in the country -- indeed, 1 in every 791 housing units is in foreclosure in Illinois.

As foreclosure filings increase, what should homeowners in Illinois expect? Lenders are gearing up for battle, as there is a big wave of default activity coming out and loans that were in default before the pandemic moratorium re-enter the foreclosure pipeline.
