Foreclosures Increase Over 80% in 2008

Foreclosure filings on more than 2.3 million properties reported in 2008., one of the largest foreclosure listings providers, reports a total of 3,108,364 foreclosure filings in 2008 — auction sale notices, bank repossessions, and default notices — 1,275,791 U.S. Properties over the course of the year; an 82% increase in all properties from 2007, and a 240% increase in the total number of properties from 2006.


The alarming report also shows that over 1.8% of all U.S. Homes (that is one in 54), received at least one foreclosure filing during the year (an increase from 1% in 2007), which may not sound like a lot to some people, but consider that there was a lot of construction occurring at the same time.
