The USA Today’s Wall Street Cheat Sheet reported the top 12 states with the healthiest foreclosure markets.

The ranking, based on the percentage of foreclosure inventory and the amount of completed foreclosures in 2013, looked like this:

  1. Wyoming
  2. Alaska
  3. North Dakota
  4. Nebraska
  5. Colorado
  6. California
  7. Minnesota
  8. Montana
  9. South Dakota
  10. Virginia
  11. Missouri
  12. Arizona

So, even with Memphis, one of the state’s main cities that CNN Money ranked as the 10th “Hottest Housing Market for 2014,” Tennessee still has work to do in the foreclosure department compared to other states.

“Clearly 2013 was a transitional year for residential property in the United States. Higher home prices and lower shadow inventory levels, together with a slowly improving economy, are hopeful signs that we are turning a long-awaited corner,” said Anand Nallathambi, CoreLogic’s president and CEO. “The housing market should continue to heal in 2014, but we expect progress to remain very slow.”

CoreLogic is a North American corporation providing financial, property and consumer information.
