  Only 161 homes fell into foreclosure in November, the lowest single monthly total since 2007.

New data from the New Hampshire Housing Finance Authority shows foreclosures were down 25% through the first 11 months of 2013, compared to a year prior.

The report credits slow but steady improvements in the housing market and overall economy, and banks allowing more short sales for homeowners who owe more than their house is worth.
