Yesterday was the fun market-report day, even if the news was mixed. Today, it's the sad market-report day: PropertyShark's Q1 foreclosures study. Things are getting a little dicey, as you can see above, though it could be worse (Miami had nine times as many). Still, the 918 first-time foreclosures represent a 51% increase over Q4 2007, and a 65% increase over the first quarter of last year. Of course, it's all Queens's fault (and to a lesser extent, Staten Island), as the borough accounts for 508 of the foreclosures. Manhattan even slipped a little, from 27 to 23.
