We search for homes in distress in one of the neighborhoods where we work. We look for houses that will have an impact on a given street or block when we have completed our work. We aim to “cluster” the houses close to other homes under rehabilitation. That might mean investing near a home that a landlord is rehabilitating. It might mean working with other nonprofit or for-profit housing developers. It may also mean that we simply purchase multiple homes in a given area. Frankly, we also seek out houses that we can afford.
