CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A new report says Wyoming has the lowest foreclosure rate in the nation with just 0.79 percent of home loans in arrears.

The report was released by the Washington, D.C.-based Corporation for Enterprise Development, which looked at 133 factors as varied as home ownership and policies protecting the poor.

Casper real estate agent Ramona Kuhn tells the Casper Star-Tribune (http://bit.ly/1fLitbc ) that Wyoming lenders are conservative.

In other rankings in the report, Wyoming ranked fourth in data reflecting current economics, such as income, poverty and home ownership. Wyoming also ranked second to last in policies the organization thought helped people’s financial security, such as health coverage and welfare eligibility.

The report looked at 50 states and the District of Columbia.

The Washington-based nonprofit helps low-income people save for college and homes.
