Residents have struggled in a challenging economy
The rate at which Dakota County homes were foreclosed on declined from 2008 to 2009, but that's hardly a guarantee tough economic times are over in the south metro.
There were 1,859 foreclosures in Dakota County in 2009. That is below the record 2,052 that took place in 2008, but it's still more than 2007's total of 1,580, which at the time was a county record by more than 700.
