6 sites to help you find foreclosures recently released a list of the top 10 states for foreclosure based on June numbers. Many on the list aren't a surprise, but a few — such as Idaho — are.

Other states on the list were Nevada, Arizona, California, Utah, Michigan, Florida, Georgia, Illinois and Colorado.

A word of warning, though: Foreclosures may look like great deals, but buying one can be a hassle.
