Here's a video taken this morning of the house and block:

There is no exterior fire damage visible to this home. It is vacant and open which means it has been subject to both the elements and vandals for some time.

There are also many vacant and fire damaged homes around it.

If this is for investment purposes, when you are considering purchasing a property, always look at the block first with videos and pictures.

Next, look at the properties that have both rented and sold near the subject property and are similar to it.

Make sure you're using a professional to give you this data, it is not sufficient to get it solely from the person selling you the home.

All property info should be provided and VERIFIED independently when purchasing so you don't make a bad decision and waste money.

Again, I'm not sure if this is for investment, but you should be cautious. You can never affect the entire neighborhood, but you can affect your property.

So purchase the worst house on the best block, not the best house on the worst block.

Safety is an issue when living in or renting a property. You lose money and time if your home sits vacant or is constantly vandalized.

Good luck.
