Back in 2009 we had closer to 5,000 NOD's a month filed.
Since AB284 was changed in 2011 the NOD's plummeted as a side affect of them trying to curb the robo-signing fiasco. Since then we have stayed under 500 NOD's almost every month for several years.

While this is an increase, it is still down from 5,000 a few years back.
I hope this helpful to buyers and sellers out there!
