Foreclosures continue to wreak havoc in Ohio communities, according to data released from the Ohio Supreme Court. In Ohio 70,469 new households filed foreclosures in 2012. This was about the same as in 2011 (a 1.5% decrease) but was more than four times as many foreclosures as we were seeing in the mid 1990s (15,975 in 1995). Foreclosure filings peaked in Ohio in 2009 with 89,061.
