GREENE: The foreclosure listing firm RealtyTrac says its latest data shows the nation's housing market is improving. The foreclosure process was started on just a little more than 57,000 homes in June, and that's the lowest level for any month in seven years. Completed foreclosures also posted a steep monthly and annual decline. But states including Florida, Nevada and Ohio are still being dragged down by home repossessions.
