According to RealtyTrac, an online marketplace for foreclosure properties, foreclosure filings – default notices, scheduled foreclosure auctions and bank repossessions – were reported on 332,292 U.S. properties in October, up nearly 19% from that time last year. One in 385 U.S. homes received a foreclosure filing that month.
