Warren Group sharply revises some Mass. foreclosure data

The Warren Group said Friday that it provided incomplete foreclosure data for September in a monthly report about foreclosure activity in Massachusetts, an error that resulted in an apparently skewed snapshot of the local housing market.

The Boston firm, which tracks real estate data, now says that 1,420 foreclosure petitions were filed in Massachusetts during September, up 22 percent from the number of petitions filed in September 2011.
