Update: 1430-1432 Druid Hill Avenue
Update: 3706 Southern Avenue
Great news! These two homes were purchased in December, and the new owner is looking forward to starting the work to bring them back to life. I was given a tour of one of the homes the owner did nearby, and it’s absolutely beautiful. They received Federal historic tax credits, and as a result, so […]
Update: 923-927 Washington Boulevard
Thanks to Reader RW for the photo — what a wonderful renovation of this once-blighted home! And the work was done with permits, too! This is what the home looked like back in 2012: This is what it looks like today:
Update: 1243 Glyndon Avenue
These properties are scheduled to be demolished July 1, 2015. One other property on this block was demolished (a large corner building) and the parcel will be turned into a fenced parking lot for the short term. Hopefully someone will eventually purchase the lot and build something to benefit the surrounding neighborhood. In the meantime, […]
Update: 1202 Glyndon Avenue
Sadly, this home is under the same ownership and is in the same (or worse) condition as when this post was written. 1243 Glyndon Avenue today:
A Small Victory: 1101 Nanticoke Street
This property is still a vacant eyesore, and is still under the same ownership by a Patterson Park resident. Here’s the original post on 1202 Glyndon from 2010. Here’s what it looks like today:
Update: 1117 Carroll Street
Finally, after four years of court hearings and inaction on the part of the former owner, 1101 Nanticoke Street has a new owner — Karen Gross, a Baltimore realtor. Hopefully she will do something with the home and it can be sold, alleviating the nightmare the former owners caused.
Update: New Properties on the Block
And now the house was set on fire. (Updated December 19, 2014.) This home was originally posted in 2011, and sadly — conditions have gotten worse. Property Address: 1117 Carroll Street, Baltimore, MD 21230 Property Owner: Irene Davis, same address. Interesting to note, in 2009, Heidi Kenny (of ground rent and tax foreclosure fame) […]
Update: 812 Washington Boulevard
A bunch of properties featured on the blog will be auctioned off at the end of the month — hopefully they’ll go to owners will will do something with them, and not people who will continue to let them deteriorate. Many thanks to the attorneys at Baltimore Housing for their hard work getting these properties […]
Update: 1226 Hollins Street
Finally, a pleasant update! This home has been completely renovated, four years after we wrote the original post.
This sad property has only deteriorated in the four years since we first wrote about it. Same ownership, too. I fail to understand why someone would bother to own a property (even to pay off a foreclosure) and then not do anything with it. Where’s the advantage in that?
