One in every 501 U.S. households received a foreclosure filing last month. Foreclosure filings increased from a year earlier in all but 11 states. Nevada, California, Arizona, Florida and Michigan continued to have the highest foreclosure rates.

During the first six months of 2008, 343,159 Americans lost their homes, up 136 percent from 145,696 recorded during the same period in 2007.
