Sharon's year-to-date foreclosure petitions total 25, up from 4 in June 2011, The Warren Group said in a recent press release.

Statewide, foreclosure petitions, which start the foreclosure process in Massachusetts, "fell to the lowest level so far this year," the firm said.

"A total of 1,254 petitions were recorded in June - a 29.5 percent decrease from May. Year-over-year foreclosure petitions, however, rose almost 27 percent in June, from 990 in June 2011. From January through June, 9,131 petitions to foreclose have been filed statewide, up 68.6 percent from 5,415 during the same period in 2011," the firm said.

Sharon had one foreclosure deed, or completed foreclosure, in June, compared to zero in June 2011, the firm reported.

Sharon's year-to-date completed foreclosures total 11, compared to five in June 2011.

Statewide, foreclosure deeds "decreased almost 24 percent to 715 in June, down from 936 deeds in June 2011," the Warren Group said.

"This is the first time since September 2011 that deeds posted a year-over-year decrease. A total of 4,450 foreclosure deeds have been recorded in the first six months of the year, up almost 18 percent from 3,782 a year earlier."
