Eyesore of the week 9/27


1112 E César E. Chávez Ave., Lansing


Good news: This eyesore is a work in progress. Located in Lansing’s Northtown neighborhood near the corner of César E. Chávez and Massachusetts avenues, this three-bedroom, two-story single-family home was built in 1918.The unoccupied property is owned by Juana and Bulmaro Tenorio of Wyoming, Michigan, who bought it from Delphine LLC for $30,000 on Aug. 8, 2022. Bulmaro Tenorio said he’s been slowly working on the house since the purchase and that he plans on using it as a personal residence once he can save up enough money to complete repairs. There’s a lot of work to be done, with the wooden siding cracked and falling off in places, the front porch steps splintered and sinking and portions of the gutters bent and coming loose. According to the Lansing Assessor’s Office, the house changed hands twice in 2020, first sold by Kevin and Betty Hough to Uncommon Valler LLC for $16,500 on Feb. 5, 2020, and again to Delphine LLC for $29,000 on Dec. 18, 2020. The assessor lists the property at a value of $29,200 and the 9,583 square foot lot it occupies at $11,486. It is not red-tagged.
