That works out to a rate of over 2,200 per day. Every day in 2011.
While foreclosures eased slightly in March 2012 vs March 2011, “RealtyTrac expects banks will repossess close to 1 million homes this year.”

The Leviticus 25 Plan, on the other hand, would ‘power up’ liquidity at the family level, providing debt relief and a strong dose of financial security to American citizens. These benefits have been utterly lacking throughout the government’s orchestrated (‘central planning’) response to the ongoing, 3-year financial crisis.
The debt relief benefits of the Leviticus 25 Plan would provide the equivalent of what is known in the ‘derivatives’ world as direct “support of the underlying assets.” Namely housing (with additional support for any other form of pledged collateral).
Daily American News – Apr 12, 2012 : “At the end of last year , some 1.5 million U.S. homes had mortgages that had gone unpaid at least 90 days, according to Mortgage Bankers Association data.
First-time foreclosure notices, such as warnings of initial default, are the first step in the process that can potentially result in a home being foreclosed upon. Homes can exit the process if the overdue payments are paid. Sometimes, a bank will allow that the home be sold for less than what the borrower owes on their mortgage, a so-called short sale.
All told, 101,939 U.S. homes received a first-time notice in March, the biggest monthly increase since October, RealtyTrac said.
Thirty-one states posted a monthly increase in homes with a first-time foreclosure notice. Nevada led the pack with an increase of 153 percent.
Even so, foreclosure activity overall — as measured by the number of properties receiving a notice of default, scheduled for auction or repossessed by lenders — sank in March to the lowest level since July 2007, the firm said.
In all, 198,853 homes received a foreclosure-related notice last month, down 4 percent from February, and down 17 percent from March last year.
Banks took back 55,075 homes in March, down 14 percent from the previous month, and down 25 percent from March 2011.
RealtyTrac expects banks will repossess close to 1 million homes this year. Last year, lenders took back 804,000 homes.”
