Unless you've been sleeping under a rock, you know that foreclosures are at their all time high since the turn of the century.

Here are two takeaways from this list:
1. If you are looking to buy or invest and live in once of these states - now is a good time to make your move. The market will definitely come back, and those who are able to take advantage now will do well.
2. If you are looking to move, you may want to consider one of these places if you want to start over a pick up a good deal on a home, which will likely be your largest investment.
