The state saw 3,097 homes go through foreclosure in the 12 months ending Oct. 31. That’s down from 5,941 homes in the 12 months ending Oct. 31, 2013.
The percentage of Kansas homes that passed through foreclosure fell from 1.1 percent of all homes with an outstanding mortgage in 2013 to 0.9 percent in 2014.
