Is Home Maintenance Contagious? Evidence from Boston

In disadvantaged neighborhoods, the condition of the housing stock can vary from block to block. On one block, homes appear well kept and in good condition, while on another, many homes show signs of physical distress.

Researchers at the Boston Fed examine this issue in several Boston neighborhoods in this report.
