Anthem Foreclosures on the Rise

The number of foreclosures in Anthem quadrupled during the first five months of this year, according to numbers provided by a national firm that tracks the data. Arizona Regional Multiple Listing Services, IMAPP Inc company based in Tampa, Fla., collects property and tax information from counties such as Maricopa County. The numbers for the Anthem community show that foreclosures rose over the past three years:

• 2010: 288 houses were foreclosed on, January through May.
• 2009: 69 houses were foreclosed on, January through June; 148 houses July through December.
• 2008: Two homes were foreclosed on, January through June; 15 houses July through December.

The Anthem Community Council wrote off $433,608.19 of uncollectable debt from fees that council had assessed homeowners. These accounts were 999 days past due (3 yrs) and most of the people had moved out of state and there is no way to collect according to spokesperson, Karen Angelo.

Based on this current information, we can expect more lender owned property inventory to continue entering the market for quite some time.
