Neighborhood in Partial Decline
Aspen Hill is becoming a Slumburbia. Current destabilization of the residential real-estate mortgage market, starting in late 2008 has accelerated this trend starting in early 2009. By August 2009, most of the primary wave of foreclosures has swept through. The so-called "alt-A" mortgage foreclosure wave is expected to begin another wave of foreclosures and evictions in September-October 2009.
