May is half over so here are the statistics for the first two weeks of the month compared to the same period last year. The number of deeds recorded was up 34%, rising from 216 in the first two weeks of May 2012 to 289 in the first two weeks of May 2013. Mortgages were down 4%, sliding from 559 to 535 for the same two periods. Foreclosure deeds were down - I think this math is correct - 940%, plunging from 16 to just 1. Orders of notice were down 52%, dropping from 27 to 13. Total documents recorded was up just 2%, rising from 2605 to 2649.
