I'm not going to claim to know anything about real estate, but I hear there are people out there who can afford to buy and sell houses.
And sometimes that involves starting from scratch. Real estate developers often buy locations in disrepair and fix them up in order to turn a profit and create a beautiful new home.
TD Development recently bought a home in Baltimore, Maryland. After determining that one of the brick walls of the house was completely unstable, they worked with city inspectors to determine that it should be demolished. This is a pretty routine occurrence for them, but they never could have anticipated how wrong it would go this time.
