According to OregonLive, foreclosure filings tumbled in the state’s largest counties in September, which will likely be short-lived as lenders retool their responses to legal changes in the foreclosure process.

According to numbers compiled by Gorilla Capital, a Eugene company that buys and resells distressed properties, foreclosures in the state’s largest seven counties have fallen by 42 percent from a year ago and 80 percent from a month earlier month.
