The number of people being forced out of their homes in the Tulsa area continued to decrease in January.
Approximately 491 foreclosures were carried out last month, resulting in a rate of one for every 829 households, according to a new study by real estate data service RealtyTrac.
That’s 13.4 percent below December and 12.3 percent below January of 2012.
By comparison, the national foreclosure rate of one for every 869 households fell 7.2 percent for the month and 28.5 percent for the year.
Oklahoma’s rate of one for every 1,552 homes, down 16.2 percent for the month and 21.4 percent for the year, gives the state the 28th highest rate in the nation.
