Several states continue to be plagued with high foreclosure rates. RealtyTrac reported last week that foreclosure starts rose 6 percent year-over-year, which is the third consecutive month for increases following what had been more than a year of declines.

California has the highest foreclosure rate in the country, according to RealtyTrac, with one in every 325 housing units receiving a foreclosure filing in July (more than twice the national average). California had the highest foreclosure rate in the country despite an 11 percent decline month-over-month and a 25 percent drop year-over-year, according to RealtyTrac.
