Home foreclosures in the state are slowing down, but that could soon change. Just more than 15,500 homes were hit my some kind of foreclosure action last year. That a 1.5 percent decrease from 2010, but a 32 percent increase from 2009. California-based Realty-Trac tracks foreclosures nationwide, and they say we should see a pickup in foreclosures in the new year as paperwork delays are worked out.
