As the housing market improves, the number of foreclosures should decrease, right?

Not necessarily.

According to a report, the number of foreclosures could increase as lenders will speed up the foreclosure process, moving homes to be auctioned quicker.  This could be a result of more buyers lining up as the prices for houses rise.

After the housing market collapse, some lenders decided to let borrowers keep their homes even though they weren’t paying.  These lenders feared they wouldn’t be able to sell the foreclosed houses and pay fines for not maintaining the properties.

Not anymore.

“Lenders know there’s now a much better chance they can get those properties sold, so they’re moving to do that,” said Daren Blomquist of RealtyTrac, a real estate data firm.

Don’t let your home become one of the those properties.
