Please take action today, and contact Mayor Rawlings-Blake — ask her to make sure the Vacants to Values program has strict residency requirements, and doesn’t provide more opportunity for flipping, a criminal offense that was outlawed — although, you’d never know that by watching the Baltimore real estate market.  While many investors are honest…many are not, as evidenced by the number of poorly-constructed “rehabs”, and housing code/lead paint violations.

Baltimore City cannot afford yet another failed housing program — let’s make sure this program benefits City residents, strengthens our neighborhoods, and rids our city of blight.
