How many properties do land banks generally have in their inventory at any given time?

Land bank inventories vary greatly from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Inventory sizes range anywhere from a few properties to thousands of properties (in spring of 2014, the Genesee County Land Bank had an inventory of approximately 11,000 properties). Reasons for this variation include the size of the community in which the land bank is located, the level of distress and disinvestment in each community, the land bank’s property acquisition process, strategy, and authorities (including whether state law grants the land bank the authority to pick and choose which properties to acquire out of tax foreclosure), and the mission and goals of the land bank.
