Foreclosure Filings Rise

Could real estate prices decline further? It's possible, especially if foreclosure filings continue to increase. Triangle area foreclosure filings were up 58% in the first quarter of 2010 vs. Q1 of 2009. This article from the Triangle Business Journal has more details numbers.
