Foreclosure Rate Heat Map - HotPads.comTechCrunch had a piece on new mashup by HotPads.com. It basically shows you the foreclosure rates per capita in any area they have data on.

Of course, being a nosey neighbor, I want to see how bad it is in my area. Yes, it makes a huge difference on the value of your own homes. Plus, I don't want to see a lot of red, cause it may be people I know.

The legend, I posted at the top right of this post shows you the heat maps grades of low to high rates of foreclosure. I can tell you, my home is in the yellow area, with no immediate homes foreclosing, at least, based on this chart. I do see blocks that I know people live on, with homes up for foreclosure - which upsets me. Here is a screen cap of that map:
