Foreclosure filings in the Triangle slowed some in June but filings continue to outpace last year's levels through the first half of the year.
Filings in Durham, Johnston and Wake counties totaled 4,433 through the first six months of 2010, up 24 percent from the same period a year ago, according to the N.C. Administrative Office of the Courts monthly report.
Foreclosure filings mark the start of the foreclosure process. Some homeowners will work out repayment plans. Others will lose their homes.
As the economic downturn has dragged on and the state's unemployment rate has remained high, the foreclosure crisis has spread from subprime borrowers to those with traditional mortgages.
