If you are interested in saving one of these houses, please contact the city and persuade them to delay demolition while you attempt to contact the building's owner and purchase the property. If the property's owner cannot be located, you can try to arrange to buy the property with help from the city.

I blogged about the house at 1214 Voskamp Street first in 2012. Conditions were bad then, and the house was in a state of neglect. Sadly, no one stepped forward to purchase or renovate the house, and the owner continued to let the property decline. The taxes have been paid on the house, and hopefully a potential buyer could still contact and negotiate to buy the property from the owner. One should assess the property's condition and viability of restoration before purchasing, however.
