The recession may be officially over, but more folks are worried this year about the roof over their heads.

The prospect of foreclosure is on the minds of more Americans this year than last year according to a survey by the Washington Post.

Fifty-three percent say they are concerned they won't be able to afford their mortgage payments or rent.

That compares with 46 percent who were worried about housing payments last year.
