Data collection methodology
Default Research's Metro Market Reportâ„¢ is an accurate breakout of the number of unique pre foreclosure filings per county. Individual properties are only counted once during the prior twelve month period, thus making the statistics more precise as opposed to counting each property every month. The report contains aggregations of notice of default, lis pendens, and notice of trustee recordings from seven of the ten largest counties in the nation.
