Also making the rounds is the news data from Realtytrac on foreclosures by region for the 1st quarter of 2009. No sign of Pittsburgh in their top 25 list.
maybe a vacation real estate story: NYT covers Somerset County: Think Poconos, on the Other Side of Pennsylvania.

also related... was this in any local news? AP has a story pointing out how a local firm Home Loan Services has a chunk of bailout related business from the Treasury Dept. to handle foreclosure mitigation.
Finally, on the value of North Shore real estate. Forbes has released its annual valuation of professional baseball teams. Not withstanding a few wins the Pirates are ranked 2nd from last among all franchises at $288 million. If you adjust for inflation PNC Park cost how much? Mentioned earlier, but some fun stats in the 2009 Major League Baseball Fan Cost Index recently out as well.
