Notices of default were up for the first time in four months, while foreclosures remained flat in February according to data from the San Diego County Assessorâ€™s office.The 2,345 NODs filed were up 25.5 percent from January, despite being down 36.7 percent from February 2009.It was the highest total of NODs filed in a month since October 2009.University of San Diego Professor Alan Gin was unsure of why the jump would occur since it is not linked to seasonal change.â€œIt could be random fluctuation, and we would have to wait a couple more months to see if this means [NODs] are on the rise,â€ he said.There were 1,141 trustee deeds filed with the county in February — only one more than in January. Februaryâ€™s totals were down 16.4 percent from February 2009.â€œThere are some positive signs in the economy, and we need to wait and see if that will help people keep their homes or continue to buy homes,â€ Gin said.
