There may not be a quick fix, but options are out there
Most lenders want to know if their properties are vacant. The want to protect against vandalism, repairs and neglected maintenance. It makes their property that much harder to sell down the road.
Hang in there as the squeaky wheel gets the oil so to speak.
Don't sit back since this is a concern to you. Unfortunately, distressed properties do impact neighborhoods to a degree. A good bank appraiser should take all into consideration when evaluating Real Estate in a particular community. Not always done though.
Best of luck to you,
Do you want to buy the home? If that's the case, talk to them directly about that, saying that if they ever decide to sell, you'd like a chance to buy it before it goes on the open market.
