REO and Vacant Properties: Strategies for Neighborhood Stabilization (4.6 MB PDF) contains seventeen articles that examine a variety of neighborhood stabilization issues. The collection highlights both areas of need--such as for data, technology, and collaboration--and promising solutions from communities across the country. Examples include the Cuyahoga County, Ohio, land bank that holds vacant properties until they can be returned to productive use, and Boston Community Capital’s efforts to purchase foreclosed properties and sell them back to former owners or tenants using a licensed mortgage affiliate.
