Not trying to make

oscarthecat(z7MD)September 26, 2012

a political statement just telling what I saw. Hiway 70 passes through Wheeling WV and on the outskirts of the cityI spotted 4 homes boarded up. These were nice homes and I wondered where the people went. Wheeling used to be a very busy place. Lots of galvanized steel products, garbage cans, washtubs, waterpails etc. I wonder when things will turnaround and people will come and pull the boards off those houses??

I understand what you're saying. In my fiance's neighborhood, his is the only home for sale out of 14 that is NOT in foreclosure. So very, very sad.

The people will pull the boards of the houses when they are able to buy the houses at today's market value and when the banks will lend at today's value.
