Each month, RealtyTrac keeps tabs on all publically recorded foreclosure-related activities — notices of default, foreclosure auction notices and bank repossessions — throughout the country. They also post “foreclosure home” listings -– short sales; bank and trustee auctions; and REOs, along with traditional listings across the country. They make their statistics available on their website on a state-by-state basis (which is then also broken down by county).
