Denver homeowners, give yourself a high-five.

Our fair metro had the least distressed home sales among the 25 biggest urban areas, according to a report from Corelogic. That means fewer foreclosures and short sales than anywhere else this March.

Nationally, distressed sales were 9.9 percent of all sales; in the Denver metro, they were 2.6 percent of sales.

If you think that’s low, wait until you hear how many foreclosures were in Denver county during that time — 10. That’s right, according to the city’s real property and sales data, only 0.45 percent of total home sales in Denver county were foreclosures.

Montbello, with 2, had the most.
