My friend buys HUD foreclosed properties in the Poconos. The area is depressed and housing is cheap.

What you save in housing costs will more than make up for extra travel time.

Around 20 years ago, Allentown was distressed. I suspect Pottstown is distressed since Mrs Smith's pies closed. They employed a number of people. Also, maybe Reading.
