Top 10 US States with the Lowest Foreclosure Rates …

1. South Dakota. One in every 11,082 homes in South Dakota are in foreclosure as of March 2018, states RealtyTrac. Only 0.01% of South Dakota residential properties are in foreclosure, compared to the national average of 0.06%.
2. North Dakota. Just one of 10,824 homes in North Dakota are in foreclosure, as the state's vibrant, energy-based economy continues to attract new job seekers—and new homebuyers—thus driving residential real estate prices upward.
3. Vermont. Only one in 7,176 homes in the Evergreen State are in foreclosure, as of March 2018, making Vermont singularly stand out from Northeastern neighbors like New York, New Jersey and Massachusetts who have higher home foreclosure volumes.
4. West Virginia. Like Vermont, West Virginia is one of the handfuls of U.S. estate east of the Mississippi River that make the "least foreclosure" list.
5. Montana. The Treasure State also has a miniscule foreclosure rate—just one of every 6,277 residential properties are in foreclosure, according to RealtyTrac.
6. Colorado. The Rocky Mountain State is well ahead of the median pack in low foreclosure rate status. The state only has one foreclosure for every 4,527 homes, according to RealtyTrac.
7. Idaho. Another Western U.S. mainstay for housing these days is Idaho, which boasts a low foreclosure rate of one home out of 3,807 homes, RealtyTrac states.
8. Mississippi. At one out of every 3,490 homes in foreclosure, Mississippi also makes the list of fewest foreclosures across the U.S. The Magnolia State is an outlier in that real estate prices have stayed basically flat (- 1.3% over the past year, according to Zillow) and that the average home is valued at just $113,531.
9. Kansas. The nation's heartland seems to be recovering quite nicely from the Great Recession's economic hangover. The poster child in the region could well be Kansas, where only one in 3,404 homes is in foreclosure.
10. Texas. According to RealtyTrac, Texas has a relatively-low home foreclosure rate—only one in every 2,637 homes in the Lone Star State are in foreclosure.
