The good news about Jeffco’s housing market keeps coming, despite a recent increase in delinquent mortgage payments in the county.
If the county’s current foreclosure rate remains steady for the rest of the year, Jeffco will see 55 percent fewer home foreclosures started than in 2012. Through the first three quarters of 2013, Jeffco has begun 1,087 foreclosures.
If that pace holds up, the county will see about 1,449 foreclosures. In 2012, the county had 2,650 homes go into foreclosure.
