Since the peak of the housing bust, the monthly number of foreclosures has been coming down steadily.

According to the National Association of Realtors, home sales are increasing and a lower percentage of these sales are from distressed mortgages. Signs may be pointing to realty recovery, but as of February this year, there were still 750,000 homes somewhere in the foreclosure process. While this is down from 1 million homes two years ago, there are still a notable number of foreclosures occurring.

Here is an overview of the banks that hold the majority of the foreclosures in housing market, as of February 2013, according to RealtyTrac:

Some of these banks don’t own the foreclosed mortgages, they are simply servicers for other institutions. Even though foreclosures are on the down climb this year, there is still work that needs to be done. With 750,000 homes in the foreclosure process as of this February, that translates to mounds of paperwork and miles of details!
