Noticing more and more Sheriff's sales on foreclosed homes?

It's not only happening in Lakewood. It's a nationwide issue.

Total bankruptcy filings rose 13 percent, and business bankruptcies rose nearly 30 percent, in the twelve-month period ending Sept. 30, 2023. This continues a moderate rebound after more than a decade of sharply dropping totals.   

According to statistics released by the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts, annual bankruptcy filings totaled 433,658 in the year ending September 2023, compared with 383,810 cases in the previous year. 

Business filings rose 29.9 percent, from 13,125 to 17,051, in the year ending Sept. 30, 2023. Non-business bankruptcy filings rose 12.4 percent to 416,607, compared with 370,685 in September 2022. 

Bankruptcy totals for the previous 12 months are reported four times annually. 

This is the third straight quarter that total bankruptcy filings have risen.
