If you select map type “More…/Real Estate”, and check “Foreclosure” as the listing type, Google will map out all the foreclosures for you.  Every dot in the below map is a foreclosure in the Washington DC region (yikes!).

Floyd Norris presents some interesting data indicating that it was the least expensive homes whose prices went up the most, and are now falling the fastest.  Barry Ritholtz sees this as more proof that the bubble was in credit – not housing.

Based on the idea that well-being cannot be measured by GDP alone, the Human Development Index looks at over 100 indicators, which you can explore on maps and charts at the most detailed level, or as aggregates (health, education, income). The chart display does seem to have problems separating out Washington DC, however – since we don’t actually have a congressional district — <sigh>. (via)

One Mortgage

In: Housing

Dan Edstrom (who performs securitization audits for a living) decided to diagram what actually happened to his mortgage as it was securitized. Good luck understanding it.  (via Caryn Sykes and Huffington)

October’s update of the Economic Indicators Dashboard:

and while we’re at it, here is the AP’s Economic Stress Map, which shows unemployment, foreclosures, and bankruptcies from 2007-today, by county.

Personally, I don’t know why we’re still subsidizing homebuying. (via Ritholtz, who points out per-capita would probably have been more useful)

One of my favorite summaries of economic indicators. Click on any of the “historical details” to see what each indicator means and why it’s important. Updated 9/22/10.

Property taxes nation-wide. Uses “median property tax paid” rather than the actual tax rate, so might be saying more about the size and value of houses in that state rather than the tax differential.

This map displays unemployment, foreclosures, bankruptcies, or a composite “stress index”, by county. Easy to miss: in the upper right you can change the scale of the mapping (rates, m-t-m, y-t-y). To look at data over time, click on the “monthly rates” option and a historical slider will appear at the bottom. Double click on a region to zoom in. Updated 8/2/10.

A chart illustrating why home are still overvalued. image

Planet Money bought a toxic mortgage asset and has been tracking it’s death spiral. It’s now almost completely dead (non-performing). In a recent article they also tried to track down the people who originally took out the mortgages.

A great monthly status board for market and economic indicators. Click on anything – the popup details are great.
