The Meridian real estate market is also showing a growing trend in the number of non-foreclosures vs. foreclosures being sold. For example, of the 167 home sales in October, 133 were non-foreclosures. That's nearly 80% being non-foreclosures. As you can see in the graph below, that trend holds true for every month this year, except for January where the numbers were the same.

While October climbed slightly from September, it still showed a 27% drop from the year before. September was the lowest number we've seen in years at just 17.9%. In fact, according to the graph below, every month this year shows a drop in Meridian foreclosures when compared to one year ago. That drop is around 20% or more.
