Twenty homes went into foreclosure in Crow Wing County in February.
Another 21 homes were on that path with foreclosures likely if not assured. But the good news may be in the lower numbers for the notices of pendency, which indicate a foreclosure is looming for area homeowners, was down compared to the last two years.
The county had fewer actual foreclosures in February of 2012 with 17, but more were lurking in the wings with 38 pending foreclosures. Go back further to 2011 and there were 28 foreclosures in February and 41 pending.
