    I am a partner of Skyline Properties. we have been developing houses mainly on the East side of Baltimore for about 8 years and have invested over 30 million to date, I understand that a website like this can help for the investors who have no intention to develope their properties and have been sitting on them for a long time. But I also feel it is important to do a little more homework before throwing out information on well established companies who are the ones taking boards off properties faster than any organization in this area. Skyline is working closley with community leaders and the city to help improve the East side of Baltimore by investing millions but it is obvious that this can not be done overnight. The house that you listed on the 500 block of Patterson Park is one of 160 recently purchased and will be completed by november of this year.
    Please feel free to contact me at the e-mail listed if you would like to be updated on Skyline and other projects in the area

      Hopefully you will be able to finish this property by the end of the month — a rather ambitious undertaking.

    This is my first time on the site, and I’m curious, as someone who has been, and who worked extensively with investors…How long is a property allowed to be boarded up, before the owner is deemed a ‘SlumLord’? If a property is boarded up, with no notable hazardous conditions, why would it be considered for the Slum Lord Watch? What type of investigation is conducted before a property makes it to this site…especially considering the claims could be libel? Does someone have to file a complaint, or do you do your own investigating? Lastly, do you correct any incorrect claims? I’ll look forward to reading the response & revisiting the site!

      Let’s address the “libel” issue first, since it comes up often — although, I must say, you’re the first to use the correct term. Usually I’m accused of “slander”.

      The information to verify claims is taken directly from public records…therefore, no claim of libel would be successful. Each property is checked against public databases, press releases, etc.

      Moving onto the rest of your comment…

      If a property owner has been the owner of record for a period of time — I like to use well over a year as the benchmark, although I’ve used shorter time periods when neighbors have pointed out issues (structural or crime-related) with the property or the property owner. Again, these are verified against public records.

      Most properties are on the blog because I, or one of our readers, saw them and thought they were blog-worthy. And yes, I have updated posts to reflect changes of ownership/incorrect public records, when they are verified.

      Please note that “no notable hazardous conditions” is highly subjective. By virtue of being vacant, and remaining vacant for months/years/decades, a property has greater negative potential than one that is inhabited. Read my post on “Broken Window Syndrome” to see why even the “nicer” vacants can bring a community down. You can also read this post about a “nice” vacant in Cleveland that literally went from vacant house to extreme hazard, overnight.

      I hope this answers your questions — feel free to post again if you have more.

        Please remove this property from your website. Check out baltimorehousing.org, go permits and you will find the Certificate of Occupancy, USE 2010-04658, dated 11/22/10 for 527 N. Patterson Park Avenue. The aggressive deadline was met and beaten.

        Hi Ann — We sent you an email to ask for pictures so we could do a before and after, but received no response. The offer still stands!

    Hello Everyone,

    Skyline NH RES 3, LP is the owner of 115 N. Rose Street. It has been abandoned almost two years now. They have not bother to send a property manager to tend to the property nor have they tried to rent the property. This home is clearly empty and beginning to be run down. This is bringing down the appearance of the small street. If anyone can provide me information on how to report this, please feel free to contact me.

    Interesting to note in Fauquier county Virginia Anne M Dubosque as substitute trustee transferred 2 acres Lot 2 5399 Casanova Road near Warrenton to Federal National Mortgage Association for $380,911.00
    FNMA (in under 6 days) transferred the same property to Skyline Properties Virginia L.L.C for
    $162,800.00.

    A difference of $218,111.00.

    What’s wrong with this picture?

    How nice skyline wants to defend itself I live on Jefferson street in Baltimore city I live right in between two of their houses both are vacant the drug dealers are using the houses now to hide their drugs when I report this to skyline they dismiss it my neighbors and I have to constantly call the police sadly skyline tells the dealers who they think calls in the hope we will stop calling not going to happen were tired of it. between the dealers and the people they move into the properties selling drugs too our children aren’t safe. We are working to get skyline removed from our neighborhood we intend to call the police everyday and night until they do something about this problem they have created by not being vigilant about the houses they buy and the people they put in them.

      It’s all about making a profit, and not investing in communities. Sad, because if they’d act like better neighbors, it would improve the value of their properties. What an idiotic business model.
