Foreclosure Filings Increase

Nationwide, foreclosure filings rose 14% in December over November, the first monthly increase since foreclosures peaked last July. Foreclosure filings for the fourth quarter of 2009 were 18% above those for the same quarter in 2008.

Here in Kansas, 9,056 properties had filings of some sort placed upon them, an increase of 45.6% over 2008.
