During the financial crisis foreclosed properties were bought by Big Money investors to use as rentals. The investors also started selling securities backed by the rental revenue they were now collecting.

This could be because of the poor property management. These vacancies could create big problems for the community, the bondholders, local housing market, and current tenants.
