LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- A new housing report out Monday shows foreclosure rates are up in Jefferson County.

The figures from Corelogic show foreclosures rates up in March, inching toward three percent.

That's up almost three quarters of one percent from this same time last year, but it's actually lower than the national foreclosure rate of more than 3 and a half percent.

The report also found homeowners are doing a good job of keeping up with their house payments.

The local mortgage delinquency rate is lower than what it was at this time last year.
