Foreclosures Rise Sharply

Nationally, one of every 194 U.S. households received a foreclosure filing in the first three months of 2008, according to recent figures from RealtyTrac.

There were nearly 650,000 foreclosure filings -- which include notices of default, auction sales and bank repossessions -- issued during the first quarter of 2008. That's up 23 percent from the last quarter of 2007, and up a staggering 112 percent from the same period a year ago.

Foreclosures increased in 46 states and in 90 of the nation's 100 largest metro areas. More than 156,000 families have lost their homes to bank repossessions this year.
