In the real estate run up from the late 90's until the real estate crash of 2008, Many old neighborhoods realized an influx of cash and re-investment and 'liberal lending practices" allowed many to go in former marginal neighborhoods and buy. The crash hit those neighborhoods hard with high foreclosure rates and was not helped by blight abatement ' policies of may cities. However those problems have led to some good buys out there and we will from time to time explore some neighborhoods and point out some Midwest preservation bargains out there for the preservationist ready to make difference in a re-emerging neighborhood.
