Mortgage foreclosures more common in outlying Las Vegas suburbs

Very little has changed in the last few months. Nevada still ranks as number 1 in the country in mortgage foreclosure filings with 18,087 for the first quarter of this year, according to California firm The state just can't seem to shake that undesirable position. Clark County has nearly 16,000 of that total which in turn aims the red spotlight right on Las Vegas.

The noteworthy aspect here is that the large majority of the foreclosures are in the outlying suburbs. In the new home subdivisions where builders large and small kept putting up house after house during the recent exceptional boom. By zip code the two top "performers" here are 89131 in northwest valley and 89031 in North Las Vegas, as tallied by the research shop SalesTraq.
