Over the past 20 years, shipping, logistics, warehousing, and retail have developed as the predominant industries of the Inland Empire.  The recession of the past few years has hit these industries hard, which in turn, has impacted housing in the region. Since 2006, foreclosures have risen 3,500%; there has been one foreclosure filing for every 133 households.  Of 104,000 properties currently on the market, nearly a third are being listed as short sales, while over 11% are in foreclosure or bank owned.
