Woman Finds Out Her House Was Accidentally Demolished While On Vacation
I could not imagine coming home to my house in St. Petersburg and finding out that it had been mistakenly demolished.You read the headline right ” Woman finds out her house was accidentally demolished while on vacation.”
Sarah Hodgson says while she was on vacation her neighbor called her and asked if she hired someone to tear down her home. Hodgson told them no, and that’s when they alerted her that a company was there and they just tore the her entire house down.
Why didn’t the neighbor try to stop them?
She did but they told her to “shut up and mind her own business.” One of Hodgson’s family members got involved and actually went over to the property. The family member asked to see a work permit, and when they showed her, it was the wrong address.
The supervisor who was on site actually admitted to it. The crew then packed up and left. The work crew probably thought they were at the right house, because it was boarded up. It had actually been boarded up for 15 years but the lawn was maintained and all the taxes were current on the property. They still should have double checked the address!
How Does The company plan on fixing this?
Hodgson said the company “We Call It, We Hall It” has yet to contact her. She has already filed a police report and spoke to a lawyer. Fox 5 Atlanta has called the company to get their statement and they say they are working to resolve the matter.
Even though the home had been vacant for 15 years, it was her investment property. Something she could rent out, sale or even pass down to family. That is no gone, and for the company to just act nonchalant, doesn’t sit right with me. What would you do in this situation. Feel free to email me Babs@wild941.com
Best 25 Places To Live In America
Many may wonder, what exactly makes a place an ideal hometown? Perhaps affordability, an area with a stellar school system, and access to shopping—depending on priorities, any of these might be deciding factors in choosing the best place to live in America.
To help make a choice, Stacker compiled a list of the best places to live in every state using Niche’s 2021 rankings. Niche ranks places to live based on an array of factors, including the cost of living, educational level of residents, housing, and public schools. While this data is the most current available, some housing statistics Niche uses to calculate its rankings—such as median home values and housing costs—are not entirely reflective of the current housing market. Since these numbers are subject to frequent changes and housing represents 10% of Niche’s total ranking, those statistics are omitted from forthcoming data points and do not detract from Niche’s overall assessment of the best places to live. Check out the details of Niche’s methodology.
The list features college towns, suburbs, and cities. Many are appealing for varied reasons—from their safe environments and commitment to education to their proximity to the cultural attractions of an urban area and nearby wilderness for hiking and skiing. Some grew popular when a major company moved in, boosting local job opportunities. Some are especially quaint and historical, while others have been experiencing tech booms.
Whether you are looking to relocate, just daydreaming about a change of scenery, or curious to see if your hometown is mentioned, take a look at the American towns and cities that have earned their spot—and read why—on our list of the top 25 places to live in the U.S.
