This Week in Demolition: Disappearing Properties

This week in Demolition, we don’t have much of a story. Part of this is due to a lack of interesting homes this week, another issue is a phenomenon of real estate websites deleting older listing and removing older photos. Take for example 4639 Ingersoll, a relatively standard 1950s Home located in Afton Oaks. HAR.com lists only one photo, while Realtor.com shows 22. Obviously the photos are from an older listing based purely on size, quality, and the general look of the house. Often now houses are sold on a “for lot value” basis only with some owners refusing to show homes, like 1723 Candlelight. Another culprit are developers who purchase lots like 2345 Quenby and replace the photos with renderings of the proposed new home.

Some interesting homes this week include 1103 DuBarry a 1950s Ranch, 839 St George, and 1705 Wycliffe are also worth taking a look at. Hopefully next week we’ll be back to a better, bigger, fuller, tastier post. In the mean time though, anyone want to take over demo posts?!

4639 Ingersoll, Photo source: Har.com I mean it’s the only one left on there…
