SAN FRANCISCO – U.S. home seizures reached a record for the third time in five months in August as lenders completed the foreclosure process for thousands of delinquent owners, according to RealtyTrac Inc.

Bank repossessions climbed 25 percent from a year earlier to 95,364, the most since the Irvine, California-based data provider began keeping records in 2005. Foreclosure filings, including default and auction notices, fell 5 percent to 338,836. One out of every 381 U.S. households received a filing, RealtyTrac said Thursdayt.

“We’re on track for a record year for homes in foreclosure and repossessions,” said Rick Sharga, RealtyTrac’s senior vice president. “There is no improvement in the underlying economic conditions.”
