North Shore foreclosure action scant in Q2 2010 (Chicago Now)

Late last year real estate agents were sounding alarms about a pending tsunami of foreclosures on the North Shore. It doesn't appear to be happening.

The Woodstock Institute's Q2 2010 report was recently released, and the pickings appear to be relatively slim for foreclosure foragers in the more populous North Shore communities.

According to the report, Evanston saw 33 completed foreclosure auctions during the quarter, Highland Park had 18, Lake Forest 6 and Wilmette a mere two.

Foreclosure filings for Q1 2010 were: Evanston, 85; Highland Park, 37; Lake Forest, 15; Wilmette, 19.
