New Jersey, and South Jersey in particular, has a high rate of homes in some state of foreclosure.  In 2017, the state had 57,599 properties with a foreclosure filing. WRI is working with the Financial Wellness Institute and Land Dimensions, a land use planning/engineering company, to assess the extent of the foreclosed housing phenomenon in South Jersey, the cost of foreclosed properties to the South Jersey economy, recommendations for efficient solutions, and the potential economic benefit of those solutions.
