The number of foreclosures in Illinois fell by 24 percent from October to November. A report from Realty-Trac shows 12,941 people filed for foreclosures in November. The number includes default notices, auction sale notices, and bank repossessions.
The rate is 21 percent lower than November of 2009. But it's still an ominously high number; Illinois ranks 9th in the nation in foreclosures.
