Foreclosures Through The Roof

In a case of bad news turning worse, foreclosure filings against Massachusetts' homeowners have hit their highest monthly total on record.

According to a new report from Foreclosures Mass Dot Com this morning, lenders started proceedings on 22-hundred and seven properties last month. That's double the number for January last year.

The latest figures follow the Framingham company's records for 2006, which show a 77 percent rise in the rate of foreclosures across the Bay State.
