The report shows that serious delinquencies are increasing, up more than 50% over the past two

2,015 housing units).
27,812 U.S. properties started the foreclosure process in March 2020, up 3 percent from the

Lenders completed the foreclosure process on 9,091 U.S. properties in March 2020, down 13
percent from the previous month and down 25 percent from March 2019.
