Unfortunately I have not been able to post in a while due to health issues. I’m still not exactly sure what is going on. I have been through many tests, to no avail but I’m still here… there’s a plus.
Quite a bit has occurred since I last posted concerning the Hopkins Project and also the E. Baltimore project so hopefully sometime soon I can update you all on the full details. While I have a few seconds before my head gets too crazy I’ll give you some updates.
The Hopkins Area Project
The city has made me a ridiculously low offer for the house…as if you expected better. Obviously my attorney is now involved and it’s going to end up in court I assume. The offer is less than what I paid to for the house in the beginning believe it or not. Not to mention all the money I’ve poured into this house. If you are new here and you want to read more about how the city can try and take your property and not even pay you fair market value, follow the link. Throw in the fact the this house is being rehabbed but they are trying to use a codemnation loophole. Talk about abuse of power and stepping on the little people.
Old East Baltimore Project
Since my health issues started around the same day I closed, I have not been able to do much on this one. However, recently I have started working here. The plumber is roughing in new gas lines and fixing minor plumbing issues left from the previous contractor. The electrician is working on a new service. Permits are pulled and things are going somewhat smoothly. Believe it or not the city is gotten themselves involved with this one as well. Coincidence? I think not. This one is not even in a redevelopment zone that the city nor Hopkins have any documented interest in. The drama continues. I’m wondering if this whole real estate business is even worth it, at least not in Baltimore anyway.
