Las Vegas Tops Foreclosures List


NEW YORK ( -- The epicenter of foreclosures shifted to the booming city of Las Vegas at the end of 2007.
Seven of the top 100 worst-hit zip codes last December were in the gaming capital, according to statistics compiled for by RealtyTrac, the online marketer of foreclosure properties.
A year ago, old Midwestern industrial cities like Detroit and Cleveland dominated the foreclosure statistics amid factory closings and job losses.
