Report: housing foreclosures heading up again

And apparently the problem could get worse again, very quickly. CNBC:

Yes, banks are ramping up loan modifications and ramping up short sales and ramping up deeds in lieu of foreclosure, but the plain fact is that as the systems are oiled, the loans are moving through faster, and the pig in the python is showing its face.

We won’t get the numbers until next week, but sources tell me they will likely be a new monthly record.

Tens of thousands of loans have been hitting the “notice of trustee sale” bin, and that means they are coming to foreclosure.

The actual foreclosure numbers have been down recently because of all the modification efforts, but as we see more loans not qualifying for modifications and more loans defaulting on modifications, the foreclosure numbers rise.
