The vast majority of homes in this neighborhood that are vacant due to the owners walking away have been vandalized. Copper stolen, anything of value taken. The area has changed substantially in the last 20 years and violence, prostitution and other illegal activities are rampant. There was a triple homicide a few blocks away last fall, and that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Today I signed a purchase agreement and put a down payment on this house. I'm from Waterford and am not familiar with the area so its nice to read good things that I made a good choice. My closing is scheduled for March 4, 2013. Why did you take the pool?

I lived right around the corner on Buckingham! Was your mom Muriel? We were the Barrows. What a great neighborhood that area was! Flint has changed so much.

Flint did go through some changes with the loss of the GM Buick plant but some there are very nice areas there. We all have memories of where we grew up but with age comes change. I am sure who ever lives there now will grow up with great thoughts also.

I am not sure who Carol Armstrong is but my father built that house. I have the pictures to prove it. I lived there from 1958 through 1971 but the house was built before that. My siblings lived there longer than I did. It was a nice house. Glad you are purchasing this. Hope you have a great time there.
