CLEVELAND — Slavic Village leaders are offering an extremely Cleveland-y promotion to help clean up the neighborhood: take down a “We buy homes for cash” sign and get a free ice cream cone from Daisy’s.
Signs from these companies litter street poles and benches around town, and neighbors say not only do they look junky, they’re put up by predatory companies that take advantage of homeowners by underpaying and undervaluing homes.
“We’re changing for the better now, and those signs are a reflection of when we were going through more desperate times as a neighborhood,” said Christopher Alvarado, Executive Director of Slavic Village Development.
Rooms To Let: CLE, the organization running the promotion, said on Facebook that these companies are acquiring properties and letting them fall into disrepair in an attempt to profit at the neighborhood’s expense.
