Over half of U.S. metro areas saw an increase in foreclosure activity from September to October, but foreclosure-related filings nationwide were down 19 percent from a year ago, according to the latest report from foreclosure data aggregator RealtyTrac.

The number homes subjected to default notices, scheduled auctions or bank repossessions in October rose on a monthly basis in 113 of the nation’s 212 metro areas with a population of at least 200,000, RealtyTrac said. One in every 706 U.S. housing units was subjected to a foreclosure filing during the month, a 3 percent increase from September.
