NEO CANDO "Using Local Market Data to Support Neighborhood Stabilization"


Enterprise Community Partners hosted a live online webinar titled: "Using Local Market Data to Support Neighborhood Stabilization." It was held on Thursday, February 10, 2011 from 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM

The Powerpoint presentation for this webinar is now available here online.


Sponsored by E*Trade Financial and presented by Enterprise’s Foreclosure Response Initiative, this event is the final presentation in a 4-part series focusing on comprehensive neighborhood stabilization.

The webinar was intended for nonprofits, local governments and other community stakeholders interested in using data to guide and augment their neighborhood stabilization efforts. Local market data are of great value to all community stakeholders engaged in stabilizing neighborhoods. Using data on real estate transactions, code enforcement activity, property conditions and other factors provides a clearer picture of what is happening in a neighborhood and allows for limited funds to be used more effectively to stabilize the targeted community.

This presentation is complementary to a recently completed case study on the local market data system created and used in Cleveland, OH to provide current parcel-level data to support neighborhood stabilization efforts - “Data Driven Neighborhood Stabilization: A Case Study of Cleveland’s NEO CANDO System."
