Here’s a link to a map that shows 99 foreclosed properties in our city. Are we surprised that they are concentrated in the east and northeast?
The fact that they’re not the same raises the question of whether either one of them is complete.
Do any real estate brokers want to comment on this? Is anybody who reads Somerville Voices being foreclosed on? Probably most of these 99 are tragic stories.
Finding these web sites was an indirect result of our crowd-funding experiment. Some of us met Saturday to pick the first few stories we will try to fund that way, and one of them was a monthly foreclosure map of the city.
But then Barry Rafkind found these links through Google!
The website with the map has 55 foreclosures listed for Cambridge, 110 for Medford.
The 99 for Somerville is six fewer than it was just yesterday, so the list clearly changes fast. We’ll check back.
