The number of Mississippi residents facing the potential loss of their homes is dropping, according to RealtyTrac, which tracks foreclosure notices nationwide.

Last month, there were 358 foreclosure-related actions in Mississippi. Those range from an initial notice of default to the actual loss and repossession of a residence by a lender.

That's a drop of 17.5 percent in May 2009 and a 6.3 percent drop from April 2010.

But last month's figures included 213 homeowners who lost their homes to a lender.

Mississippi ranked 47th nationwide in foreclosures.
