A surprising statistic that rarely appears is that over 30% of all homes in the US are free and clear.  The 10 cities you pointed out are divided between four states, all Sun Belt states.   I would guess that many of them were subject to investor speculation. 

In our new economy, thrift is no longer a dirty word.
