Data released by RealtyTrac Thursday shows that foreclosure filings were reported on 610,337 properties during the third quarter of this year. That translates to one in every 213 U.S. housing units with a foreclosure filing during the three-month period. The third-quarter tally represents an increase of less than 1 percent from the previous quarter, but it breaks a trend of three consecutive quarterly declines that started last year. RealtyTrac says it looks as though we’re about to see a change in direction from the fall-off in foreclosure activity that set in after the robo-signing controversy.
