There are 60 foreclosure-related advertisements in today’s legal section of The Newnan Times-Herald, including a re-run for a portion of the Ashley Park shopping center in Newnan.

The foreclosure advertisement is for an area of the shopping center owned by Fourth Quarter Properties 104 LLC.

According to Coweta County tax records, Fourth Quarter 104 owns the area that includes Georgian Cinemas, Best Buy, and three buildings labeled "shopping center.”

The foreclosure advertisement originally ran in November and also ran in December.

The other commercial property in today’s foreclosures is a restaurant building at 11 Spence Ave.

The remaining 58 advertisements are for single-family homes.

This month’s total is down two from last month.

Foreclosure numbers have been down significantly in the past several months.

That was the 22nd consecutive monthly year-over-year increases in home prices nationally, according to CoreLogic. Home prices dropped slightly, by 0.1 percent, from November to December.
