The number of properties subjected to foreclosure-related filings increased 5 percent from the second quarter to the third, driven by a 21 percent increase in bank repossessions, data aggregator RealtyTrac said today.

RealtyTrac said the number of properties hit with foreclosure-related filings dropped 4 percent from August to September, to 343,638, but that number still represented a 29 percent increase from a year ago, and the third-highest monthly total since the downturn began.
