The percentage of homeowners whose homes were being foreclosed on dropped from 2.37 percent to just above 2 percent during that period.

    Isn't there a forelocusure moroatorium in DC?

    I think the moratorium expired a couple years ago and was replaced by a mediation process that gives owners a little more leeway to keep their homes. I could be wrong, but I remember hearing something to that effect awhile ago.

    There continues to be a huge backlog of forclosures in DC due to complications in the mediation process. Forclosures are still essentially not happening in DC.
