Ohio foreclosure rates down, but not all good news

After several years of record-setting foreclosure rates in Ohio, the rates dropped in 2013 as compared to previous years, according to a news report. Even though that sounds like good news, Ohio does still rank fifth in the country in the rate of foreclosures.  In 2013, one of every 65 properties in Ohio was involved in the foreclosure process at one point or another.

Controversial foreclosure case before Ohio Supreme Court

In the wake of the housing market crash, mortgage lenders have gotten a bad reputation for improper and rushed foreclosures that violate the rights of homeowners. In a case that is currently before the Ohio Supreme Court, a bank has filed a foreclosure action against an Ohio couple before the bank even held the mortgage.

Large number of homes deeply underwater in Ohio

Foreclosure has been an overriding concern for many homeowners since the housing bubble burst in 2007.  According to housing analyst data, Ohio has been listed as one of the states with the greatest percentage of deeply underwater foreclosures occurring.  Fortunately, these foreclosures appeared to have been declining in December as we are seeing more homes described as being rich in equity.  Hopefully this trend will continue.

Aeon Financial accused of abusive debt collection practices

A debt collection firm named Aeon Financial foreclosed upon more than 400 properties in Cuyahoga County, the largest county in Ohio. The company also apparently had purchased a number of liens in other states across the country as well. Yet what is truly unusual about these circumstances is the fact that Aeon information lists no owners or company website. Its operations stem from mail-drop boxes in Chicago and the company apparently is represented by a law firm with a Colorado address.
