A report by the New York State Comptrollers office revealed that the foreclosure rate in Ulster County is far below that of the rest of the state and the other counties in the Hudson Valley. The stats indicate that a foreclosure is occurring in 1 out of every 546 homes in New York State. The foreclosure rate for Ulster County came in below that average with an occurrence of 1 out of every 700 homes. Meanwhile, the rate was 1 in every 319 households in Dutchess County and 1 in every 205 households in Orange County.
These stats again seem to indicate that housing market in Ulster County is less susceptible to downturns in the economy then other areas of the Hudson Valley.
