South Carolina sighs “Sometimes it’s good to be outside the top 10″ – Foreclosure News

It’s usually a good thing to be a leader.  But every now and then, it pays off to be in the middle of the pack. This is one of those times for South Carolina.

South Carolina is NOT a Top 10 Leading State in Foreclosures!*

Who leads the nation in foreclosures?

California leads, followed by Florida, Arizona, Illinois, Nevada, Michigan, Ohio, Georgia, Texas, Virginia.

Although South Carolina does not lead the nation, our state courts are receiving record filings in the foreclosure arena; many by self-represented litigants.  Many legal and social service providers continue to work with people to save their homes.

Trend information is available online at the RealtyTrac where they track foreclosure information. You can access blogs and other information about foreclosures at this site.
