It seems like there are less listings coming out but still a lot of notices in the paper. Overall they seem down in MN as well.

The NOD's in California are staying steady but the Banks are slow to foreclosure on the property.  Their are more distressed properties then the "reports" are saying. We will bounce back. Great article.

I recently read that Chicago has more foreclosure houses than any other city. Las Vegas and Los Angeles are only too happy to yield that distinction.

We Will bounce back. Dont listen to all the BS and propaganda shoved down our throats. THERE ARE PLENTY of OPPORTUNITY'S out there/ Look at prices and rates? You can buy twice as much house as you could 5 yrs ago during the BOOM?

Stephanie this is great information. I'm not surprised that the top 3 states are on the west coast. I know for California the foreclosure rate is coming down a little. Thank for sharing!

CA is in 2nd place.  That's a bit of a surprise.  In Santa Clara county ~30% of our sales are distress sales including Short Sales and REOs per our MLS.

I had no idea Georgia and Utah were so high on the list, especially ahead of Florida.
