Foreclosure patterns

The Puget Sound Business Journal this week pulled together a large take-out on foreclosures around King County, and used the statistics on foreclosures to map the areas around King where foreclosures were especially high or low.

High? Maple Valley and Tukwila, notably high-growth areas over the last decade. The highest concentrations of foreclosures in the county, in fact, run roughly in the south-county triangle between those communities and Federal Way. Seattle itself? Less so; and most of the really rural areas in east-county aren’t especially foreclosure hotbeds either.

These are mostly new houses.
