Is the foreclosure crisis winding to a close in Mass.?

It sure looks like the foreclosure crisis is ebbing here and elsewhere.

The Warren Group reports a big drop in the number of homes that were foreclosed upon in October. The number of actual filings continued to rise, but the Warren Group said the filing increases were artificially low last year due to a deliberate regulatory slowdown in petitions tied to all the robo-signing controversies.

Meanwhile, the Globe did a big story on Sunday about the foreclose picture across the nation and Massachusetts – and it came to the conclusion, citing data and economists’ viewpoints, that the foreclosure crisis is indeed “ebbing.”
