    After a bit of a lull early in 2011 the foreclosure process appears to be picking up momentum again for Whatcom County residents.A check of the Whatcom County Auditors website shows 185 notices of trustee sales – typically the first stage of the foreclosure process – were issued in the first quarter of 2011. Of those 79 – about 43 percent of the quarterly total – were issued in March.In addition Whatcom County had 89 bank repossessions in the first three months of 2011 according to RealtyTrac an online site that tracks foreclosure properties. Washingtons was the 14th highest state rate while Nevada one in 35 housing units receiving a foreclosure filing last quarter and Arizona one in 60 topped the list.Across the U.S. 681 153 foreclosure filing notices were sent out in the first quarter of 2011 a 15 percent decrease from the previous quarter and a 27 percent decrease compared to the first quarter of 2010.Thats not a sign the housing market is improving however but that the system remains backlogged said James J.
