Either way you cut it, foreclosures are at very high levels as data for 2010 was released. According to the Warren Group, there were 12,233 foreclosures in 2010 — a 32 percent increase over 2009’s 9,269. But the 2010 number was still below 2008’s total of 12,430. That may seem like a glimmer of hope, but keep in mind that foreclosures stalled last fall amid the robo-signing scandal, which is still playing itself out.
