This Map Of Underwater Homeowners Shows The Sunbelt Is Still Scorched

Zillow is out with a new map showing the concentration of underwater homeowners — those who owe more on their mortgage than their home is worth — by county.

The actual data: 30.9 per cent of U.S. homeowners with a mortgage were underwater, down from 31.4 per cent last quarter.

The main conclusion: the Sun Belt — California, Nevada, Arizona and Florida — are, four years later, still digging out from under the crisis. Same for much of Michigan.

They also have a breakdown of cities, which basically tells the same story. The red shows the per cent of underwater homeowners who have missed payments.
