St. Louis, Kansas City make abandoned homes list

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Two Missouri cities placed in the top 10 on a real estate information company's list of cities with the most abandoned homes, but a Kansas community was at the top of the heap.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/U2Etri ) reports the Kansas City metropolitan area qualified for fourth place in the RealtyTrac list with 305 vacated foreclosures, or 36 percent of its foreclosed properties.

St. Louis is right behind at fifth place, with 847 of 2,500 foreclosed properties being vacant, or 34 percent.

Wichita, Kansas, had the highest rate at 49 percent, with 146 abandoned homes in foreclosure.

Portland, Oregon, was second on the list.
