Foreclosure Capital of Texas

Fort Worth-Arlington had the highest rate of home foreclosures in the state and among the highest in the nation during the first half of 2007. Foreclosures hit one of every 57 households in Fort Worth-Arlington, ranking it 13th among the nation's top 100 metro areas, according to RealtyTrac, a California-based foreclosure-tracking service. Unbelievable!

Why does Fort Worth get lumped in with Arlington? I'd like to see how Dallas would fare if you lumped in, say, Grand Prarie with it.

My feelings about Arlington remain self-evident. Fort Worth-Arlington is an artificial creation of real estate industry. Why? Who knows? I don't want to be lumped in with those people either.
