Palm Beach County saw a 51 percent increase in foreclosure filings last
month, according to data from Palm Beach County Property Appraiser
Sharon Bock, the Palm Beach Post reported. There were a total of 1,204
initial cases filed in November, a jump from 797 in the same period in
2010. “Recently, we’ve seen many more foreclosure filings than we did at
the beginning of 2011,” Bock said. “Even with the slight decrease from
October to November, there were still several hundred more cases filed
last month than in the fourth quarter of this year.” [Palm
