Update: 923-927 Washington Boulevard

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, have a look at 923 while it’s still standing. Sadly, the condition of this property only declined since 2011 when the original information was posted.

A Small Victory: 1101 Nanticoke 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: 1117 Carroll Street

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) filed to foreclose on this home, yet the case was subsequently dismissed.)

The glass has been smashed out and it appears people have been coming and going through this basement window.

1117 Carroll Street, rear yard is still a mess -- a dumping ground for trash and household items. The yard is so overgrown you can't see the house.

Update: New Properties on the Block

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 away from their neglectful owners:
