2009 Atlanta Foreclosure Report

According to the most recent report from Equity Depot (an Alpharetta based firm), the Atlanta real estate market had a record setting 117,107 foreclosures notices filed in 2009.  That's a near 50 percent increase over the previous record in 2008.

The report goes on to disclose a 10 percent increase in foreclosures compared to November (month over month) and ... get this ... a whopping 77 percent increase over December 2008 (year over year).

Gwinnett county led the pack with 2,074 foreclosure notices, close behind sits Fulton county at 2,006 notices.  Dekalb county figures came in at 1,568, Cobb at 1,203 and Clayton lagging behind major metro counties with 866.

Fulton county ended the year with 24,609 total foreclosures.

Unbelievable. 

Why the increase?

Well ... on top of the already battered residential real estate market ... the increase was spurred by a weakening commercial sector.
