Foreclosures for the July auction period dropped in the Texas areas of Dallas and Fort Worth. The number of residential properties, commercial structures and ranch foreclosures for sale lined up for the July block recorded a decline of more or less 10% in most counties compared with the same month of 2009.

Despite the drop in actual foreclosures, Fort Worth and Dallas pre foreclosures remain high which prevented real estate experts from proclaiming an outright recovery for the area. In addition, when month-by-month figures are considered, most counties in Dallas posted increases in foreclosure numbers.

Overall, the number of pre foreclosures in Texas remains very high, leading analysts to predict further foreclosure sales for the coming months. Statistics released by the Foreclosure Listing Service of Fort Worth showed that the counties of Denton and Collin recorded the highest increases in foreclosures when month-by-month figures are considered.

According to local housing market observers, six consecutive months of decline in home, commercial and ranch foreclosures for sale are needed to declare a market rebound. The yearly difference still brings hope to the people of the Dallas and Fort Worth areas, but they admitted that the housing market indicator should improve for the whole state’s economy to recover.

People who plan to buy foreclosed houses for sale can still find a lot of available properties in Dallas-Fort Worth. For now, analysts are still seeing a huge number of homeowners who are delayed in their mortgage payments or are barely meeting their monthly mortgage responsibilities.

Analysts have stated that the housing market indicator will continue to post poor numbers in the coming months, which means that any improvement has to come from other economic indicators, particularly employment records. Only then can the whole state economy ease into recovery, analysts have added.

Although the number of commercial, residential property and ranch foreclosures for sale dipped slightly in July, housing market experts are reluctant to proclaim a recovery. However, they are optimistic about other economic indicators and are hoping that improvement in some areas will make up for the slow recovery of the real estate industry.
