WILINGTON, NC (NEWS RELEASE) -- A new housing report out indicates foreclosure rates in the Wilmington area are on the rise.
These figures, coming from CoreLogic, show foreclosure rates up in June 2011 - over two and a half percent.
While that's up almost a full percent from this same time last year, the Wilmington rate is actually lower than the national foreclosure rate.
That rate still sits at almost three and a half percent.
The report also says homeowners are having trouble keeping up with their house payments.
The local mortgage delinquency rate is over five and a half percent, more than it was at this time last year.
