This advanced seminar will examine unique foreclosure redevelopment issues that differ from other kinds of housing and real estate development.  Community developers have been pursuing diverse approaches to foreclosed properties in recent years.  This three part workshop will share their experiences, with presentations by CDC staff and other experts in the field.  All participants are encouraged to bring their own experiences and questions, so we all can improve our work to alleviate the foreclosure problems facing our communities.

This seminar is designed for nonprofits, municipal officials and others who want to improve their tools and techniques for improving the redevelopment of foreclosed housing.  Participants should have experience in real estate development and be actively involved in foreclosed property redevelopment.

Specific curriculum areas of focus include:

  • How redeveloping foreclosed housing fits within larger community improvement plans
  • Multiple strategies for acquiring foreclosed properties, and which sellers are most active in Massachusetts
  • Diverse approaches to renovating foreclosures
  • Issues in redeveloping occupied foreclosures, such as regulatory concerns and property management needs
  • Discussion of public policies and programs that can promote successful
    restoration of foreclosed property and ways to improve them

This training seminar will be led by Louise Elving of Viva Consulting
