First, the good news. Home foreclosures in Anderson County dropped to their lowest level in several years in 2011.
Now, the bad news. It appears that the decline was artificial, and 2012 could be worse than ever.
Foreclosures, which have topped 100 each of the past three years, dipped to 63 in 2011, according to Bill Patrick, a Lawrenceburg attorney who oversees foreclosures as the county’s master commissioner.
