… but still in the national top 10, meaning that 1 in 550 housing units in Illinois is now in foreclosure. That in turn translates to roughly 1 out of every 10 residential homes.

But the real scourge of the real estate market is that is has hollowed out entire blocks and permanently affected the ability of homeowners to move, sell, divorce, or refinance. Most are stuck, and many are stuck paying for more house than they actually have.
