    Anyone for a condemnation order? That is a somewhat rough block but it is far from beyond redemption! There is a rehabbed house in the 3100 blk for sale for around $250K.

      Do you know how long it’s looked like this? I’m thinking a couple of years — so…surely there’s no more “waiting on the insurance company to settle” excuse.

    We own a house on that block (where we live – not renting). That house is totally bringing the morale of the neighborhood down. I’ve had to step up and take care of sweeping in front of that place every week. Housing Violation Inspectors are scheduled to come and take a look at it… but other than that, there’s not a whole lot that I’m aware of that can be done. As far as I know, that guy owns it free and clear. The water was shut off there by the city in April. He’s been up to date on paying his property taxes, too. Anyone know of anything else that can be done to get him to fix it or sell it to someone who will? Other residents on the block say it has been this way for a few years. Ugh. This area will never get better if things like this don’t get improved! (By the way, the owner paid $360,000 for it back in 2009.)

      I have some incorrect information in my previous post, and I have received new information today regarding this property, so I’m putting the new stuff here:
      The owner of this property is in bankruptcy and the $288,000 mortgage (so, it is not paid off, like I had thought) far exceeds the value of the property. They are currently investigating the owner for other issues and there is no open foreclosure. Currently no mortgage company is lending money in transitional neighborhoods for investors at this time, (which is a problem throughout Baltimore) and will make the property harder to move on.
