This is a Re-Blog of a post from Jim  with Real Living in Florida...the problem with vacant homes is national...   some areas more than others.

 

 

Original content by Jim Hirschhorn

Ah, memories of a young lad walking from house to house, looking to make a little pocket change. Fast forward to present day and many neighborhoods are looking shabby and homeowners are up in arms at the appearance of their neighbors houses due to foreclosures and bank owned properties.

A simple solutions. They can just cut the lawn for them (as noone else seems to want to) and make it look presentable. There's only one small issue. They could be cited for trespassing and the liability if they got injured while on that property is one that the banks do not want to incur.

Now, the odds that a bank, maybe located across the country, will know who swooped in and ran their mower over someone's yard are small. But a neighbor does have to know what the risks are.

Homeowner Associations are also experiencing an overall lack of funds due to all of the owners who have not or cannot pay their HOA dues. As a result, the public and common areas have suffered and there are cases where groups of owners have gotten together to mow lawns and plant flowers.

Overall, the pride of ownership is something that many communities want to keep alive!

Hi Maureen... I hadn't really considered this until you shared Jim's post, but it is definitely an issue!
