More Foreclosures in Bend

Bend's local paper, The Bend Bulletin, reported a jump in notices of foreclosure for the month of January.  A notice of foreclosure is filed when owners are behind in their mortgage payments.  The bank gives legal notice that they are going to foreclose if the payments are not brought current.

"There were 402 notices of default recorded in Deschutes County last month, the most since the housing crisis began three years ago, according to the Deschutes County Clerks Office.

The number increased by nearly 26 percent from the 320 default notices recorded in December 2009, and more than 95 percent from the 206 notices recorded in January 2009."
