“Florida had the highest number of preforeclosure filings in the month of February, according to a report from Foreclosures.com.
The state had 53,173 preforeclosures in February, up 23.5 percent from the 43,070 reported in January and 5 percent higher than the 50,633 in December.”
Relief is still a long way off.
Update: Unfortunately, this is not just a Florida problem. Foreclosure filings are up 30% nationwide.
