Foreclosure rates in the Lehigh Valley are on the decline but they're still ahead of the national average.

Corelogic put October's foreclosure rate at nearly 3.75 percent for our area.

While that number is down from last year, it's still higher than the national foreclosure rate which sits at more than 2-percent.

The report also says the local mortgage delinquency rate is 7.75 percent down from this time last year.
