With fundamental shifts in mortgage markets and the evolution of the foreclosure epidemic, fallout for neighborhoods ranges from increased vacancies to diminished property values, challenges to property maintenance, and the need to rethink homeownership options for low- to moderate-income buyers. This course includes timely information on five distinct types of foreclosed homeowners, each of which has different implications for restoring neighborhoods of choice. The course equips participants to access and better understand local data on housing markets and other indicators of neighborhood distress due to foreclosures. You will also learn strategies for foreclosure mitigation and neighborhood stabilization. This course enables participants to begin designing customized interventions best suited to their own neighborhood housing markets. Register now.
