Top Cities for Foreclosed Homes

We’ve got them in our neighborhood too, and no one likes to see them. Believe me, I know. We woke up one morning, and our nice neighborhood had turned into a ghost town. Very, very disturbing. I guess the old hometown must have turned around a bit, or maybe everyone has already moved out because they didn’t make the top twenty foreclosure list this year. Here are the ones that did. Again, you’ll notice none of the cities are in Texas.

Below is  RealtyTrac’s list of the top 25 worst cities for foreclosures this past year:

1. Las Vegas, NV: 1 out of 9 home owners
