Andrew LePage, a CoreLogic DataQuick analyst, noted that November had fewer working days than most months, with five weekends and the Thanksgiving holiday. That could have reduced the number of foreclosures recorded.
Default notices, which trigger the foreclosure process after 90 days of missed payments, also fell over the month. In November, lenders filed 335 default notices, down 10 percent from November 2013. The notices also fell 29 percent from October’s 474 filed.
