According to the 12/11/2008 Richmond Times Dispatch
Foreclosures in Virginia continue to rise from a year ago, but the rate here is better than it is nationally.
One in every 567 Virginia households, or a total of 5,694, received a foreclosure filing in November, according to a RealtyTrac report released today. By comparison, one in every 488 U.S. households receiving a filing. Filings include notices of default, trustee sales and foreclosure sales, according to the online database.
Filings here rose 121 percent last month from November 2007, while nationally they increased 28 percent, according to the report.
This number shows the market in pre-foreclosures is still very active.Â What this report doesn’t reveal is how many of these are upside down, or how many can have a deal made from them.
Avoiding foreclosure of your home in Virginia is an everyday battle for thousands of families in the state.Â The truth of the matter is that a big percent of the families that face foreclosure today is not because the adjustable rate kicked in, but because in the last two years the cost of living has gone trough the roof, while middle class income has come down.
You might be able to get a loan modification, or simply sell your house outright to avoid foreclosure
