    Top 10 Highest Foreclosure States For First Half of 2010

    by Tom Royce on July 15, 2010

    Foreclosure2Foreclosures are a part of the United States housing landscape right now, and a new report from RealtyTrac shows that the problem is not going away anytime soon. 1.65 million homes were in some stage of foreclosure in the United States during the 1st quarter.

    In Nevada it was even more dramatic with one out of every 17 homes in foreclosure. To give this some perspective, Nevada foreclosures back in February of 2009 were historically high at 1 in 70 homes. The next closest state was California at 1 in 165 homes.

    Now the top 9 worst foreclosure states are under the 1 in 70 homes mark.

    Foreclosures and short sales are now the dominant part of the real estate market.

    Yikes.
