About Author: Staff Writer Since 2018 began, first-time foreclosures in New York City have consistently declined, and the third quarter has only seen this trend extend, according to a report by PropertyShark. Foreclosures in the city’s five boroughs are down overall 17 percent year-over-year, or 19 percent if one calculates from one quarter to the next. This is a noticeable drop, with 716 unique cases reported this quarter—the first-time foreclosures in the city have fallen below 800 for the first time since the first quarter of 2017. Citywide, pre-foreclosures dropped 36 percent year-over-year, or 15 percent if one calculates quarter-over-quarter.The report reveals that certain parts of the city witnessed the number of foreclosures drop significantly more than others, and a couple of major neighborhoods even saw their foreclosure rates stagnate. Of all the New York boroughs, Queens was the only one that saw an increase in foreclosures year-over-year. But this increase is slight—at just 5 percent— and can be interpreted as leveling off since, quarter-over-quarter, the neighborhood still saw a 15 percent contraction, the report said. Brooklyn meanwhile saw its number of first-time foreclosures barely budge, dropping just 1 percent year-over-year but still falling a full 10 percent since Q2.The other three boroughs, however, saw their number of foreclosures drop dramatically this quarter, the report indicated. The largest dip was seen in Manhattan, where just 22 properties foreclosed on marks an impressive 44 percent decrease. This breaks a record for lowest number of foreclosures in Manhattan since the first quarter of 2014. The Bronx saw the second largest decline in foreclosures at 43 percent year-over-year, though there was an increase of 10 percent since last quarter. Staten Island also saw a very sharp decline in foreclosures, a total 40 percent year-over-year or—even more striking—67 percent if one calculates quarter-over-quarter.

MASON CITY — Governor Kim Reynolds and Lt. Governor Adam Gregg met with members of Main Street Mason City late Thursday afternoon, talking about the Empower Rural Iowa Initiative as well as touring the downtown area to see recent accomplishments and future goals of the downtown area.Reynolds says from the new businesses in Southbridge Mall, the new Multi-Purpose Arena, and the renovations downtown, it’s exciting to see what’s happening in Mason City. “Impressive, exciting, I love the passion. I love the redevelopment that you’re seeing to the mall and how they’re thinking outside of the box and being innovative about bringing people downtown. The ice arena is phenomenal, it’s just incredible to see the young kids out there, and really the opportunity to through the tournaments to bring a lot of families and communities to Mason City, and that gives you an opportunity to showcase the great things that are happening here.” Reynolds says she talked with Main Street Mason City board members about ways to create more housing opportunities. “How we can continue to look for opportunities to incentivize upper housing development, to take a look at these old buildings that we have that have so much character and they’re structurally sound, and how can we make sure that we’re renovating and rehabilitating them, and finding ways that we can do that that makes it cost effective for business owners to go in there and use the existing facility.” Reynolds says the state needs to take a closer look to make sure economic development programs are meeting their goals and expectations. “A lot of times it’s taking existing programs that we have like the Challenge Grant and maybe providing a little bit more flexibility. So are we too narrow in what we’re using those grants for, and is there an opportunity moving forward to change them up just a little bit and provide some more flexibility that can really meet the needs of people that are willing to invest.”Reynolds made her comments to KGLO News shortly after talking to members of the Mohawk high school hockey team as they were holding practice at the Mason City Multi-Purpose Arena.
