It's so high in Long Valley because it's an area of many "keep up with the Jones", and they've over extended themselves. I think the rate may not be as high as 40% of actual homes, but it is certainly much higher than other areas.

1 in every 892 homes received a foreclosure notice that includes home owners in the mortgage modification process. That's from RealtyTrac.com a site that sells info on foreclosures.

I believe the information you received is not accurate. The home you emailed me about at 4 East Gate is not in foreclosure to my knowledge.

Interesting stat if its true. Where are you getting your data from?

My data didnt come from an official source. I looked at the number of single-family homes listed for resale (107), and the subsets of homes in foreclosure (43) and homes that were not in foreclosure (64 listings).
I may have missed duplicates in the foreclosure listings that did not include a street address, and also realize not every listing will appear on Trulia, so i admit this is a crude math exercise.
If the number is at all close to reality, i would expect housing prices in Long Valley to continue to fall. I welcome the opinion of the experts, however - what are you seeing in the market?
