Fodder for Your Blog- Cities Hardest Hit By Foreclosures


Blog about this:

Dissect this interactive infographic (click the image above for the full report) for inspiration on your own real estate blog. If your city is featured negatively, explain to readers why and what it means for them as a buyer or seller. If your city is featured positively, describe how the city has come to hear that good news and why the scene is different there than other cities. If your city is not featured at all, research the numbers for your own city to see if you rank positively or negatively.

The infographic covers vacancy rates of homes for sale and for lease by city, so you can easily compare your rental and sales markets or address trends of the past versus trends of the current.  This is a great way to be an information source to your consumer base.

What other ways will you tailor this information for your clients on your blog?

    I’ll be glad when Augusta comes out of the stone ages and actually shows up on some of these data sites…

    Nice infographics! Are we free to use them with attribution (who do we attribute)?

    What is the original source for the data?

    Joe, that isn’t a bad thing that you’re not there!!! Sometimes it’s better to be steady rather than on top or bottom, no?

    Josh, is the source (per the image), they create economic infographics that every now and then apply to real estate. 🙂

    Cool, thanks. I still can’t find the source of the data on their site . . . oh well. I’d have liked to have written a brief post using the info, but without the actual data source, I’ll pass for now.

    Nice pics, though!

    Josh, if you look at the story (here), the source is the US Census. Hope that helps!

    Here’s the sad part of this. You supply great information that those who are professionals should already know.

    It’s amazing. do we need to tell people to get out of a burnig building but you have to spend your valuable time showing agents how to find the data they need to be true professionals. Kind of sad isn’t it?

    Foreclosure are going to last for quite a while. Don’t forget developers who amassed some good money in deposits and could stave off all problems for a while. Now they succumb to law suits and loan delinquincies. Then another wave is those folks who managed the situation but lost a job recently. Then people who can manage their mortgage payments, but HOA fees just kill them. So on and so forth.

    The good news is what we make it to be. I am very optimistic about our city.
