Project Rehab at Work

Project Rehab is a project of the University City District that provides “comprehensive assistance to property owners – moving distressed properties from demolition threat to neighborhood asset while saving taxpayer dollars in the process.” Now, that’s one thing, but what they made happen with the above house is another:

“One of Project Rehab’s remarkable recent success stories is from the 4900 block of Osage Avenue. When UCD connected with the owner, the home was completely filled with debris (as seen here) and overwhelmed by water damage which collapsed the property’s rear wall and caused the kitchen to fall into basement. Over the course of several months, UCD guided him through the clean-out process, rehabilitation, and sale of the home. In December the home went back on the market – completely rehabilitated – for an astonishing $349,900.”

Implicit in all this, but not said, is that they probably gave this guy a whole new lease on life. But the takeaway here for the rest of us is that you should really probably vacuum when you get home tonight.
