Inland Empire distressed homes were very visible during the recession, and now that the economy has turned around, so have the counties that make up the area, according to CoreLogic.
As the housing market returns to normal, so have home sales. Riverside County, for one, saw a 6.2-percent increase year over year for single-family home sales, while condo sales increased 7.1 percent. San Bernardino County also experienced hikes of 5.5 percent and 10.9 percent, respectively.
Meanwhile, Inland Empire distressed home sales accounted for 9.7 percent nationally in September, down from 12.1 percent during the same year-ago period.
