Google Maps Shows Foreclosure Status

Note: some of the data appears out of date - but if the data was updated regularly this would be a useful tool.

Healdsburg Housing Bubble directs me to a Google maps feature that shows houses in various states of distress.

The distress ranges from delinquent payments, to homes that will be auctioned off, to REOs. It appears that Google uses several vendors for the data, and some of the vendors charge for more information.

Here is a look at a section of New York and New Jersey. Click on the red dots for more info (some data is free depending on the vendor). Use the map here, or click on View larger map and enter your own zip code.
