Palm Beach County foreclosures fell to pre-crash levels in 2015, according to data released Thursday by RealtyTrac.
There were 10,451 homes in some stage of foreclosure last year. That’s down from a peak of 43,438 in 2010 and the lowest since 2006, when the housing bubble was still inflating.
Measured another way, only 1.6 percent of Palm Beach County homes were in foreclosure in 2015, down from a peak of 6.8 percent in 2010.
The trend is similar in Florida, where foreclosures are off 67 percent from 2010 to 2015. Still, Florida ranks No. 2 among all states with 1.8 percent of homes in foreclosure. Only New Jersey’s 1.9 percent was worse.
