10 Best Markets for Investors

Methodology:

ForeclosureRadar compiled data showing the change in investor activity at trustee’s sales for the 10 largest trustee’s sale markets on the West Coast (within its five-state coverage area of Arizona, California, Nevada, Oregon and Washington). Activity increased in four markets from first-quarter 2010 to first-quarter 2011 and declined in six.

For reference we also included two other metrics: change in total number of trustee’s sales, and the percentage of total trustee’s sales purchase by third parties (investors).
