Economic stress seems to be an apt description of today’s environment. Unemployment, foreclosures and bankruptcies seem to have hit every nook and cranny in these United States. Put another way, I don’t care where you live, your jurisdiction has its share of these problems.
Wouldn’t it be nice if you had instant access to a website that measured the financial strain not only in your area but across the USA? I think it would.
Well, the Associated Press has built a tool that compiles answers to such questions as:
Where is the recession hitting hardest?
Where are conditions improving?
Handy information to have, right?
If you go to the AP Economic Stress Index you will be at THE site. Mind you, this site isn’t meant to tell you how to solve your personal real estate dilemma(s). It is meant to give you an idea of what is happening where.
Do with it what you will.
