That’s right, fellow underwater Las Vegans, there is at least one giant list-maker who recognized our resilient nature by failing to perceive the depth of our economic disaster.

But this ranking—not having one of the 15 worst housing markets—is something to be proud of. Maybe recovery is closer than we think.
