Foreclosure Filings Up in Some US Markets

Although foreclosure filings across Georgia and the rest of the US are down by nearly 80% since their peak during the housing crisis in 2010, foreclosure rates in 2018 were up year over year in 18 states. While much of the increase is related to natural disasters, other markets that were not affected saw double digit increases in foreclosure rates in 2018.
