We have all obviously heard about the mortgage delinquency program sweeping the country and finding its way into every headline today. But seeing it on this interactive map from the Wall Street Journal helped me get my head around which areas of the country are getting hit hardest right now, and what the delta is between now and two years ago.
On this map you can mouse over any of the cities to get the current delinquency rate, how this has changed since the market peak, median home price for the area, and how this price has also changed since the market peak. You can change this view to see a quarter from Q1 2005 to Q2 2007.
Thought this was interesting to pass along if you are a more visual person.
