LAS VEGAS (AP) - Analysts say Nevada ended the year 2013 with the second-highest foreclosure rate in the country, even though foreclosure activity cooled down significantly from past years.
RealtyTrac reports one in every 46 Nevada properties received a foreclosure filing in 2013. The report says about 25,000 Nevada homes were affected last year, down 78 percent from 2009, which was the peak year for filings.
Nevada foreclosure activity last year was down 21 percent compared with 2012.
Florida had the nation's highest foreclosure rate in 2013.
