Is Your Housing Market One of the 10 Worst?

It seems like demand for housing has just run out in some housing markets. While 18 of the top 20 housing markets have begun to improve, other places like Boston and Washington are holding steady. Foreclosures are high. We’re still trying to recover from the robo-signing scandal. More houses are on the brink of hitting the foreclosure market, sitting vacant. When talking about markets where the housing situation is worst, you’ll find cities that were being hit hard many years ago. Housing prices have been falling sharply, vacancy rates have risen consistently while the demand for housing decreases. These also tend to be large, older cities like Dayton, Detroit and Atlanta.
