Factoring in properties that are 30 or more days delinquent, the total increased to 6.40 million units.Florida, Mississippi, Nevada, New Jersey and Illinois had the highest percentage of non-current loans during August, while Montana, Wyoming, Arkansas and North and South Dakota had the lowest percentage.In the Houston real estate market, distressed property sales accounted for 19.8 percent of all transactions during August, the Houston Association of Realtors recently reported.Courtesy of 2M Realty News
