The More Bad News: 1 out of every 245 properties in the MSA have a foreclosure filing

The good news:  Of the 100 major metropolitan areas tracked, Minneapolis-St. Paul ranks seventy fifth in foreclosure rate.  In other words, there are 74 other markets in worse shape than us, with Stockton California having the highest rate, with 1 in 27 households in foreclosure.
