Real estate firm discloses error in foreclosure report

Warren Group, a Boston company that tracks local real estate, said Friday that because of “human error,” it mistakenly reported that fewer foreclosures were begun in September when the number actually rose significantly statewide.

In issuing a correction, Timothy M. Warren, chief executive of Warren Group, said it is the only data error the 140-year-old business has made in at least two decades.
