St Louis Foreclosures Increased 46 Percent Last Year

During 2022, there were 4,066 properties with foreclosure filings in the St Louis MSA, according to ATTOM Data’s U.S. Foreclosure Market Report.  This represents an increase of 46% in St Louis foreclosures from 2021 and a 48% increase from 2020.

It’s not as bad as it sounds…

While the 2022 increase sounds bad, the chart below, which shows foreclosure filings for the St Louis MSA since 2006, puts it in perspective.  The foreclosure activity in St Louis last year, while higher than the two prior years mentioned above, was lower than the 14 years prior.  As the chart illustrates, as recently as 4 years ago, there was over 50% more foreclosure activity in St Louis than in 2022 and 5 years ago, in 2017 it was nearly double.

Having said that, we will likely see the foreclosure activity continue to increase and I am confident that the St Louis foreclosure activity in 2023 will surpass 2022, but hopefully we won’t get to the levels we’ve hit in the recent past.
