A four-part series by Binyamin Appelbaum, Lisa Hammersly Munn and Ted Mellnik of The Charlotte (N.C) Observer profiles Beazer Homes USA and the failure of starter-home neighborhoods in the Charlotte area. As it sold homes and arranged mortgages, the company crossed the line between selling to people who could barely afford homes and selling to people who couldn't. The series features an up-close look at what went wrong in one neighborhood. It also includes an interactive map that allows readers to check foreclosure rates in their neighborhoods.
