I wished I would have read this article and did my research more thoroughly before we sold last Jan. I tell you were sure this company was gonna restore both homes but they only saved one! To see your family home of over 40 years being demolished for some hip duplex is devastating. What hurts the most is seeing my father suffer since he lived there for 37 years with my Mother. She passed in 2010 and he was diagnosed with cancer in 2012. We didnt have a choice but I wish I would have had better support from our Realtor and others who could have guide us. What is done is done but several years ago, the Nashville Scene did an article on my father "The Mayor of South 17th" They took pictures of my father outside his home and asked him questions about living on the block for so long. Now we reside in South Inglewood and wish we never had moved. I hope our story could help others realize the importance of historical homes and protecting them overlays in place or not. If a Realtor says your home will be renovated, put it in the contract. DONT sell to those companies who work for developers who love to tear down to make a quick buck.
If I could have done it all over again I would have worked 5 jobs to save that house. I felt being my fathers care giver was important and to let someone else fix up the house and enjoy it another 40 years....boy were we fooled.
