Tracking foreclosures

A monthly process for Elk Grove Village is to identify the location
and trends of foreclosures within its municipality. A subscription to
RealtyTrac provides the desired information which is downloaded over the
internet. The foreclosure information is provided to the GIS
(Geographic Information System) staff where it is plotted on a map. The
quantity of foreclosures is tallied in a line graph to realize trending
as well.

These foreclosure products are useful for many departments as they
direct staff attention to the locations or areas that may have
maintenance issues, or be subject to crime or property damage. Police,
health and community development staff have an opportunity to mitigate
these occurrences because they are informed.​
