  • What cute trim on that house pictured … hope someone was able to save it before it headed to the dumpster.

  • I’m familiar with the area in 77023 where the Lawson Street demolition is supposed to take place. The address – 1515 Lawson – is not on the tax rolls. However, there are 3 vacant lots next to one another at that location: 1505, 1509 and 1513. The only structure on that property for several years was a small frame storage building that was occupied by squatters, and it was demolished over a month ago. What’s going on here???

  • @AmyHM This house had been on the market for awhile, and it needed considerable work. I’m surprised that they’re demoing it… There was a lot of interest when it hit the market last year, but its status waffled from “pending” to “active” for a few months – longer than I would’ve expected. Guess the inspections turned up some glaring problems; thought an investor would’ve restored it, though.
