Although the country as a whole is breathing a collective sigh of relief about foreclosures, there are still little pockets of choppiness. One of those places is DC.

- Foreclosures in the DC metro are still present, but not problematic.
- In new RealtyTrac numbers for January, the foreclosure rate climbed by double-digits in DC.
- Nationally, the foreclosure rate is below 1 percent.
