…but how long does foreclosure take  in Sacramento,

According to Forecloureradar.com, the average time for a foreclosure to be completed in Sacramento County is now 270 days.

The timelines for California Foreclosures now stands at 319 days.  On both Foreclosure Timeline Charts, this is the amount of time from the beginning of the foreclosure process to the trustee sale.

These calculations of time to foreclosure in Sacramento and Sacramento foreclosure process time lines both  use the filing of the Notice of Default as the initial day of the foreclosure process. It does not take into consideration the amount of time the homeowner made no payments before the NOD was filed.  Depending on the bank, servicer and investor of each loan, this can be anywhere from 90 days to over two years…. since the last payment (The NOD legally cannot be filed until the loan is 60 days past due).
