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. The Boston firm, which tracks real estate data, now says that 1,420 foreclosure petitions were filed in Massachusetts during September, not the 973 petitions that it originally reported. Foreclosure petitions are the first step in the home-seizure process. “The corrections result from releasing preliminary data in error,” the Warren Group said Friday.
