Here's their most recent graphs summarizing foreclosure activity in San Francisco for he last year. Notice the significant fall off in Notices of Default and Notices of Sale in December compared to November and also compared to last December. Maybe it's just a gesture acknowledging the holiday season, or maybe not.
There's also a noticeable uptick in Cancellations and a small but steady decline in the number of properties that ended up Back to Bank.
Consistent with the above, there's a noticeable decline in properties in the Preforeclosure stage as well as those Scheduled for Sale compared to last month and compared to December last year.
These trends are not universal in the surrounding counties where, for example, Notice of Sale seems to be sharply up and Cancellations are mostly down.
