Report: Sacramento, Stockton Worst Places To Buy Foreclosures

Foreclosure listing service RealtyTrac's list of 20 "Worst Places to Buy Foreclosures in 2013" includes Sacramento, Stockton and Modesto. And that's a good thing if you already own a home in those markets…

"…because it means that there are going to be fewer foreclosures to compete against if you're needing to sell your home."

RealtyTrac's Daren Blomquist says it also means the value of your home is increasing.
Blomquist explains the rankings factor in the average discount a buyer would get on a foreclosure and the pace of foreclosure activity…which are both on the decline in Northern California.
"The markets where we're seeing an influx of foreclosure supply are those markets where we think it'll be better from the buyer's perspective to purchase a foreclosure in 2013."
Those markets include five cities in Florida and five cities in New York…they're among RealtyTrac's top 20 best places to buy a foreclosure this year.
