Hilltop Foreclosure and Mortgage Research

University Center for Social and Urban Research   (Pittsburgh)

March 2012 to June 2012

As a follow-up to our earlier work in South Pittsburgh's Hilltop communities, the PNCIS will be collecting data to develop a better understanding of the mortgage characteristics of properties recently in foreclosure. This information will be matched to HMDA loan-level records to develop an understanding of property owners facing foreclosure in the Hilltop. Our partners at NeighborWorks will use this information to target and refine counseling efforts in these communities.
