If you go on AREIS you can find who owns a property, and a history of it, but little else. You're often told to "ask a neighbor" if you want information about a property. Well, since people work, party, and shop, you might be out of luck when you go to make your inquiry. Also, many people don't want to "dis" a neighbor, or their property since it might hurt their relations, or their chances of selling their property when they want to get. But I see a problem emerging.
Properties are being "abandoned" because of the economic climate. While it might be better to have someone living in a property (even if for free) rather than abandon it to the elements, and vandals, people hold out for a better deal (which may not come for years). So I've taken it upon myself to start mapping vacant houses and "empty" lots in my neighborhood (or rather area that I walk about in when I'm in my "neighborhood"). Check out www.mapbuilder.net, and look for Toledomaps (that's me there).created by oldsendbrdy on May 26, 2008 at 12:50:11 pm
