Maine Real Estate Foreclosures Continue To Rise

One in every 2,710 Maine single-family homes was in at least one stage of foreclosure in July, an almost two-fold increase from the same month last year.

During July, there were 255 foreclosure filings — default notices, auction sale notices and bank repossessions — reported in Maine, a 104% increase from July 2007, according to RealtyTrac, a California company that tracks foreclosures. July’s foreclosure filings, however, represent a 7.6% decrease from June.

Nationally, there were foreclosure filings reported on 272,171 U.S. properties during July, an 8% increase from the previous month and a 55% increase from July 2007. The report also shows one in every 464 U.S. households received a foreclosure filing during the month.
