These statistics indicate historically high foreclosure activity which suggests that future declines from foreclosures and other distressed selling activity, such as short sales, are possible.  They also suggest that banks are withholding inventory from the market, presumably to promote property value stabilization and increases, and that property value statistics may not reflect natural market forces and may not be reliable.
