The foreclosure rate is an important statistic when it comes to the real estate economy. The higher the foreclosure rate is in any particular location, the lower the value of real estate is for that particular location.

When it comes to foreclosure, the first step in the process is what is called mortgage delinquency. It occurs when a homeowner fails to make one or more payments on their home mortgage. It is something you definitely do not want. Banks look at it as a serious problem and those who commit mortgage delinquency can be penalized strongly, including their credit score being lowered.

Gainesville has a 1.8 percent mortgage delinquency rate. The United States has a lower mortgage delinquency rate of 1.6 percent.

The recession of 2008 caused severe economic problems in the real estate industry. One of the problems was that the worth of houses fell more than 20 percent in the United States. This in turn caused many owners of houses to currently be underwater when it comes to their mortgages.

In Gainesville, 11.2 percent of owners of houses are experiencing being underwater when it comes to their mortgages. The metro area of Gainsville has a lower percentage of owners of houses experiencing being underwater on their mortgages. It’s 10.4 perecent.

Gainesville is now perceived by quite a few companies as a launching pad to get their brands into other locations.
