South Florida foreclosure filings jump in first quarter in aftermath of hurricane

Foreclosure filings in South Florida jumped 23.6 percent in the first quarter of 2017 compared to the preceding quarter, according to Attom Data Solutions.

The increased foreclosure action is likely related to Hurricane Irma striking the region in September 2017, the company said.

There were 4,450 foreclosure filings in the tri-county region in the first quarter, up from 3,601 in the fourth quarter. However, it was down from the 6,612 foreclosure filings in the first quarter of 2017.
