One of the things that attracted me to Reading, PA was that it is very clear that the people of Reading are committed to improving their city. There are several groups working together to improve the city, and there are several initiatives in place that positively effect commercial real estate in Reading. While researching Reading and the surrounding area over the past year, I came across one extremely interesting site, Mayor McMahon's "Wall of Shame": http://www.batchgeo.com/map/263e207495a95cce9bfd145dcab884b0.
I think that this site is a great example of one of the creative ways that the residents have come up with to improve the real estate market in Reading, PA. I don't know if I ever would have thought to shame property owners into taking better care of their real estate investments. Of course there are several more great things happening here, which is exactly why I decided to move to Reading. As I've mentioned in one of my earlier posts, I plan to provide local knowledge to the many out of state investors that I know who are interested in investing in commercial real estate in Reading, PA and the greater Reading area.
