Land banks work to put vacant and blighted property back to good use.  The Center for Community Progress reports there are at least 120 land banks in the United States and the number is growing. Most land banks are formed by units of local government.

In its research on effective land bank strategies, the Center points out how effective land banks like the Greater Syracuse Land Bank are “deploying property management software to greatly improve efficiency and transparency of internal operations.”

In fact, ePropertyPlus is the software of choice for lands banks across the country and has been since it was first developed in 2012 through a joint effort with the Center for Community Progress. Land banks are using ePropertyPlus to evaluate properties for strategic acquisition, display them for the public, and operate transparently. For a great example, take a look at the Cook County Land Bank Authority, which was named one of the nation’s most innovative public-private partnerships in 2015.
