Foreclosures Lead In Indiana

Last updated on Monday, March 20, 2006

(UNDATED) - Indiana once again leads the nation in home foreclosures.

Foreclosures reached an all-time high in the final quarter of 2005.

With proceedings started against nearly 7,600 Hoosier homeowners. Nearly 1% of mortgage loans in service statewide entered foreclosure, more than double the national rate and the state's highest rate since 1979.

The increase is blamed on a rise in factory layoffs and personal bankruptcies. Indiana has led the nation in foreclosure proceedings since July 2004.
