Realty/Trac reports that three Florida metropolitan areas are within the top ten in new foreclosure filings nationally. Number 3 is the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale area, with 9000 new foreclosure cases being filed in April, 2012. The Tampa/St. Petersburg area is number 8 with 4,295 new cases being filed in April and the Orlando/Kissimmee area is number 10 with 2,717 new cases being filed in April.
These are NEW foreclosure cases which have been filed, and just in the month of April. This does not count the tens of thousands of existing foreclosure cases which were previously filed, including the over 100,000 cases which the David J. Stern Firm left in limbo when it ceased doing business operations, many of which have now been taken over by other law Firms and which cases are starting to see activity again.
