Illinois Home Foreclosures Rise in 2012
Illinois home foreclosures rose 32.6 percent in 2012 compared to the previous year. But the rate was almost 10 percent lower than in 2010.
A report released today by RealtyTrac shows Illinois with around 136,600 foreclosure filings last year. That represents a rate of one in every 39 housing units. It's the fifth-highest rate in the nation.
Filings include default notices, auction-sale notices, and bake repossessions.
