Residential foreclosures have been rising for the past six months and will continue to accelerate in 2011, according to CoreLogic analysts.

The analytics firm estimates the number of actual foreclosures in 2010 totaled 1.3 million, up from the 1.1 million families who lost their homes in the previous year. "That runs at about 25,000 foreclosures a week in 2010, versus about 21,600 a year ago," said CoreLogic senior economist Sam Khater.
