Rally aims to help Baltimoreans remain in their homes amid pandemic-related hardships

In 2000, homeowner Sonia Eaddy was told that the rowhouse in Poppleton that her family has owned for decades was slated for demolition as part of a massive West Side redevelopment project.

In 2020, Eaddy is still living in that home on North Carlton Street and is still fighting the city’s attempts to oust her. She hasn’t given up. But neither have city officials or developers backing the $800 million Center/West project.

“We have a court date in February,” Eaddy, 53, said Saturday in front of City Hall at a rally for the March for Housing Justice.

“They don’t care about sentimental value. They don’t care how long you and your family have lived inside a home. They’ll wipe us out as if we don’t matter. They just want to get in their with their demolition crews and knock down people’s homes. The value isn’t in our houses; it’s in

Combining three parcels across nine acres, the dramatic compound includes a striking primary residence, spacious guesthouse, cabana, security office, pickleball court and pond. At the edge of the property, an infinity-edge pool overlooks the ocean.

Warm woods draw the eye across the main home,

In Palm Springs, Neutra’s famed Kaufmann Desert House aims for $25 million

In Southern California, a select group of homes are so iconic that their names are more recognizable than the stars that inhabit them. The Stahl House in Hollywood Hills. The Gamble House in Pasadena. The Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills.

New Law Aims To Increase CA Home Ownership

CALIFORNIA — A bill prompted by the Moms 4 Housing occupation of a vacant West Oakland home late last year and signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom this week aims to increase homeownership in the state.

Senate Bill 1079, introduced by state Senate Majority Whip Nancy Skinner, D-Berkeley, requires foreclosed homes to be sold individually at auction rather than bundled and sold to a single buyer.

Following the Great Recession, corporations snatched up large numbers of homes in bundled foreclosure sales.

Between 2006 and 2012, the number of owner-occupied single-family homes in California dropped by 320,000, while the number of renter-occupied single-family homes jumped by 720,000, according to the senator’s office.

“SB 1079 sends a clear message to Wall Street: California homes are not yours to gobble up; we won’t tolerate another corporate takeover of housing,” Skinner said in a statement.

Four homeless women in late 2019 moved themselves into a
