Berks foreclosures were down again in 2018

For a sixth consecutive year, the number of foreclosed properties in Berks County continued to decrease.

Numbers from the county's prothonotary office revealed that there were 801 foreclosures in 2018, down 14.6 percent from the 939 in 2017.

Broken down by quarter, there were 218 in the first three months, 213 in the second, 193 in the third and 177 in the fourth.

The downward movement began in 2012 when there were 1,436 foreclosures. The 2016 figure of 975 was the first time it was under 1,000 since 2011.

During the Great Recession, Berks had more than 1,600 foreclosures in 2009 and 2010. The total was down to 981 in 2011 because of a backlog of foreclosures or mortgage defaults that were thrown out of court. Foreclosures have dropped slightly more than 50 percent in the past 10 years in the county.

According to Zillow, a real estate website, there were 263 foreclosed properties for sale in Berks on Tuesday morning.

Berks' year-over-year percentage was better than national trends.
