REO & Vacant Properties: Strategies for Neighborhood Stabilization

Abstract: With this publication, we aim to shed light on how community development practitioners and policymakers can help stabilize the neighborhoods most at risk, that is, those beset by concentrations of foreclosures. The animating idea here is that community development practitioners should be guided by the best available research, by anecdotal reports of what efforts are working, and by the best new ideas about what other approaches might work. We culled the country for individuals and institutions that are deeply engaged in this issue, both academically and at street level. Our authors, figuratively speaking, have rolled up their sleeves and gotten their hands dirty in the data or in the field, whatever their institution or perspective. This publication is presented in two parts; one focuses on research and analysis and another focuses on policy solutions.
