Home Insecurity 2011: Foreclosure Growth in Ohio
February 15, 2011
While urban counties like Cuyahoga County are still the leaders in foreclosure rates in Ohio, foreclosure growth rates were higher in smaller, non-urban counties. Although the overall rate of foreclosures in Ohio declined by four percent in 2010 as compared to 2009, foreclosure levels remain at crisis levels, a 142 percent increase from 2000 levels. This report from Policy Matters Ohio analyzes foreclosure filing trends in Ohio and makes recommendations to reduce the foreclosure filing rate and to mitigate other effects of the foreclosure crisis.
