It's a tough time to be a homeowner on the brink.
Nationally, foreclosures in March were up 47 percent from a year ago. Kansas' 447 foreclosures in March ranked 35th among the 50 states and the District of Columbia; the monthly total was up 5.67 percent from February.
The trend is reflected locally: So far in 2007, officials say, there have been 52 foreclosures in Douglas County - compared to 88 in 2006.
The Journal-World and 6News are asking for your help telling this story.
We're looking for Douglas Countians who have experienced foreclosure - how it happened and what advice you would have for others in similar situations. We particularly want to hear from those who found themselves caught up in a subprime loan that became unmanageable.
