Foreclosure rates high in counties surrounding Atlanta

Foreclosue Sign on Top of For Sale Sign in Front of House

According to the most recent data from RealtyTrac, Douglas County had the highest number of foreclosure filings in Georgia in January and February 2013. During February 2013, one out of every 275 homes in Douglas County was involved in the foreclosure process.

In addition, a number of other counties in the area surrounding Atlanta had a large number of foreclosure filings in February. Henry County had the second-most filings in the state – with one out of every 294 residences being involved in a foreclosure. Carroll County came in at 10th for foreclosure filings in the state, and Paulding County was 15th across the state.

Although the statistics for these counties neighboring Atlanta are disheartening, the number of foreclosures taking place in the counties is actually decreasing. The number of foreclosures in Douglas County alone dropped 48.9 percent year-over-year from February 2012 to February 2013. The rates appear to be improving month-to-month, as well – the number of filings dropped 27.3 percent from January to February 2013 in Douglas.

The foreclosure rate across the state is also improving. In January 2013, Georgia ranked fifth across the country in terms of the number of foreclosures – by February 2013, the state had dropped to seventh in the U.S.

In February 2013, one out of every 705 houses was involved in the foreclosure process in Georgia. From January to February, the foreclosure rate fell by approximately 27 percent across the state.

When someone is facing financial difficulties and may lose his or her home, seeking the advice of a qualified legal professional is one way to ensure his or her rights are protected.

    They did an excellent job with my case. Jamie took the time to really listen and understand things. She delved into the details and was extremely knowledgeable and non judgmental. Very professional and they know what they are doing. Would definitely recommend!

    Dear Mr Gingold, There are so many reasons to be thankful for all you have done and will do. Anyone who has ever had unfavorable experiences with an attorney or the legal system will feel the trepidation that I experienced once I realized that my situation seemed hopeless. It was by chance and happily good luck that I decided to put my future and sanity into your hands. I was mortified at having to deal with my debts by claiming bankruptcy. I remember in our first meeting how you assured me that I was not alone and should not feel ashamed. And, anyone in this position obviously does not have money to spare and you were clear about all the costs and allowing me to pay according to my own ability to do so. You advised me in all aspects of the law, but also, you were at each meeting incredibly supportive and complementary of my personal and professional plans. Anyone else in this situation should feel blessed to have access to your expertise and support.

    I thought the process of filing bankruptcy was going to be a difficult one. However, Gingold & Gingold treated me with respect and dignity from the moment I walked through their door. I had the pleasure of working with Jamie. She is very responsive, professional, and knowledgeable. She took the time and listened to my every concern and handled each and every one of them to my satisfaction. My experience with filing bankruptcy under Gingold & Gingold's representation exceeded my expectations in a major way. They gave me such a peace of mind. I am very pleased with my decision of going with Gingold & Gingold to represent me when I filed Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

    Wow! I am finally out of debt and can say that I am debt free after completing my chapter 7 bankruptcy case with Gingold and Gingold. Mr dangled was very knowledgeable and direct with regard to my debt situation. there were no surprises and the case went as I was advised. The staff was also very helpful whenever I had a question. I will definitely recommend them in the future to my friends.

    I contacted getting old and getting old regarding some old tax debt and credit card debt that I needed to address and had been putting off. miss Irving in the office was very very nice and put me at ease. I met with Jaime Gingold. She was very nice and explained the procedure to me and what would be left owing to the Internal Revenue Service and the State of Georgia after my case was done. My case has now been completed and I am on my way to a new start. Thank you Gingold and Gingold for all of your help.
