The main difference I noticed what that abandoned homes in Chicago were boarded up, while those in Detroit were not.
Now comes the Chicago Tribune with an article with the intriguing headline,
“Chicago Trails Only Detroit in Bank-Owned Homes”
“Chicago has the second-most vacant bank-owned homes in the country after Detroit, according to Attom, parent of RealtyTrac,” the Tribune says.
- Detroit – 2,386
- Chicago – 2,379
Pretty much a tie.
