MASS.-WIDE—Foreclosure activity has either dropped or remained flat, depending on how you look at it: "A total of 4,004 petitions were filed in the third quarter, nearly unchanged from third quarter 2011 when there were 4,002 petitions filed. Foreclosure petitions were also down from 4,348 and 4,783 in the first and second quarters, respectively." [Banker & Tradesman]
