Completed foreclosures on U.S. properties reached 121,756 during February -- also the highest level since the start of the crisis, said. Repossessions rose from 72,694 in January.

February real estate owned activity surpassed September 2008's record REO filings of 104,243. revised September figures down from 108,000, as originally reported.
