Eyesore of the week

302 S. Eighth St., Lansing

Built in 1909, this three-bedroom, 885-square-foot home near the intersection of Eighth and Prospect streets was cited for lacking a rental license back in early 2017. The city went on to red tag and board it up for safety concerns in August 2021. Today, it features a dilapidated front window and deteriorating roofing. The property has changed hands seven times since 2015, including a string of transactions between firms that began when Eric Otte sold it to S & S Acquisition Group for $34,000 to avoid foreclosure in Nov. 2021. In September 2022, S & S sold it to Tillguard LLC for $165,000. Tillguard LLC then sold it to Viatores Investment Group for $10 in March 2023, which sold it back to Tillguard LLC for the same value in April, citing it as part of a deal that involved multiple properties. At the sale’s time, the owner still owed the city $1,420 in carryover fees inherited from previous owners. That balance has since been paid. Efforts to contact the owner were unsuccessful
