DAYTON, Ohio (AP) – Data shows Ohio foreclosure activity has fallen to the lowest level since the Great Recession through the first half of the year.

A report by analytics firm RealtyTrac says there were nearly 30,000 properties in Ohio with foreclosure filings, down 16 percent from the same period a year ago.

RealtyTrac vice president Daren Blomquist tells the Dayton Daily News U.S. foreclosures have fallen “well below” levels prior to the Great Recession and continue to decrease.

The report shows Ohio’s foreclosure levels are the lowest they’ve been since the end of 2009. Despite the drop, Ohio still has one of the nation’s highest foreclosure rates.
