Chart: Foreclosures in Key West's Most Expensive Neighborhoods

According to a map of Key West generated by the RealtyTrac website, Key West is still deeply in the midst of a foreclosure wave. This will continue to pressure prices for at least the foreseeable future.

A search of the Key West zip code (33040) on the RealtyTrac website returns 646 properties: 171 pre-foreclosure, 22 auction, 87 bank-owned, 23 for-sale-by-owner (FSBO), and 343 resale homes. The chart, above, shows all the properties in various stages of foreclosure (except the "resale" properties).

As the chart shows, many of the pre-foreclosures are in Old Town, the most expensive part of the island - an area thought to be more immune to foreclosures and dropping prices.

Hello from up North. Wanted to know if you heard anything about lawsuit filed against the city of Key west last week for 25 million.
