The latest vacant properties report compiled by ATTOM, analyzed publicly recorded real estate data — including foreclosure status, equity, and owner-occupancy status — matched against monthly updated vacancy data.

The report noted that 223,671 properties are in the process of foreclosure in Q2 2021, up 27.5 percent from Q1 2021 but still down 13.3 percent from Q2 2020.
According to ATTOM’s Q2 2021 vacant property and zombie foreclosure analysis, the portion of pre-foreclosure properties that have been abandoned into zombie status dropped slightly, from 3.8 percent in Q1 2021 to 3.6 percent in Q2 2021.
