Foreclosure Indicators for Baltimore City

This website contains data and maps for Baltimore City residential foreclosure filings and ratified sales. The Baltimore Neighborhood Indicators Alliance collects, charts and maps the data, in addition to maintaining the site, with support from the Baltimore Homeownership Preservation Coalition. All data is public information and available from the Maryland Judiciary Case Search and Maryland State Data Center. This website does not include data on tax foreclosures.

Accessing the Data

All foreclosure filing data is provided in downloadable Excel spreadsheets. You can also view foreclosure filings on an interactive Google map, or on downloadable PDF maps (for prior years). Right now, ratified sale data is only available by quarter in chart or graph form. For more information on foreclosure data or other resources, visit the Resources and Links page.

Understanding the Data

Two foreclosure indicators are accessible through public records: a foreclosure filing and a ratified sale. A foreclosure filing (also known as the order to docket or complaint to foreclose) is a legal action documented in the Baltimore City Circuit Court that represents the formal initiation of a foreclosure. Not all filings result in actual foreclosures – a delinquent borrower may be able to prevent foreclosure through a workout option, such as a loan modification, or by selling the property.

Using the Data

Because a foreclosure filing is one of the first steps in the process, it can be an “early warning” indicator for agencies that provide services to neighborhoods and community residents. It is not too late for a homeowner to receive nonprofit help to prevent foreclosure at the time of the filing. The data provided on this website is address-specific so that it can be used for direct outreach to the property owners.
