New records for foreclosures in 2010.

Foreclosures set records across the U.S. in the first quarter of 2010:
A record number of U.S. homes were lost to foreclosure in the first three months of this year, a sign banks are starting to wade through the backlog of troubled home loans at a faster pace, according to a new report.
RealtyTrac Inc. said Thursday that the number of U.S. homes taken over by banks jumped 35 percent in the first quarter from a year ago.

This record comes after foreclosures had set a new record in 2009, both for the year and for the first six months.
