Many homes sold by Northeast Shores this summer!
Many people in North Shores Collinwood will soon have new neighbors! So far this summer, Northeast Shores has sold many properties, and several other homes have sales pending that have not yet transferred to new homeowners. Properties on Kildeer, Chickasaw, Pythias, Neff Road and two on East 163rd Street have recently sold.
All of these homes are properties that were recently vacant, blighted structures. Most were foreclosed properties that were owned by the land bank (Cuyahoga County Land Reutilization Corporation), before they were acquired by Northeast Shores. Some of the properties sold have been completely gutted and rehabbed by Northeast Shores to be modern and energy-efficient. Others that are in better condition are part of the $5,000 home program that allows the buyer to fix up the homes themselves or using their own contractors, following specifications from Northeast Shores. “It’s great that these formerly unmaintained properties are becoming assets to their streets,” says Brian Friedman, Executive Director at Northeast Shores, “I’m very excited about all of the people who are moving in to the neighborhood.”
Northeast Shores has had so much interest from home buyers that they are working hard to keep up with the demand. “We are running out of houses!” says real estate development director Camille Maxwell. Fortunately, Northeast Shores is beginning construction on two more properties that will be part of the gut rehab plan, and there are still a few $5,000 homes available. Please visit the Northeast Shores website, northeastshores.org or contact Camille Maxwell at 216.481.7660, ext. 30 for more information about Northeast Shores properties.
