Noooooooooooo. Oh, please, nooooooooooooo.
The story of what’s next door to this home is here. They tore down an original home to make way for condos.
Patterson’s report from 1 year later, and it’s still an empty lot.
The natural fear is that a similar developer with similar plans will take this property, and plow down the house. Not much effort is being made to promote the sale of this house. Realtor Michael Stretch leaves no real cyber trail. The only on-line reference to it also shows a completely different realtor, and try following through on any of those links. All soft dead ends.
My feeling that the house was never really on the market rises from an oddity on the city property records website. Punching in 5024 gives only one page of information (that 1509 N. Broadway LLC owns it). All of the other pages are utterly blank. For some reason, all of its data is now unavailable. Just like the house, I’m sure.
I’d lay you odds the house is coming down, whether there’s a valid reason or not. It’s just coming down.
…oh, please, let me be wrong on this one.
