Eyesore of the Week:
1419 Ada St. in Lansing


Two weeks ago, the eyesore was 1423 Ada St. in Lansing. Right next door is another red-tagged and eyesore-worthy house. The property at 1419 Ada St. is boarded up. Not only is the property sporting a red tag on a window, but the plywood covering the door has a court order to vacate the premises due to a foreclosure. 

The 1914, two-story home has 1,320 square feet of living space. The property also has a garage at the end of the drive it shared with 1423 Ada. 

Property records show the house was foreclosed on in June 2022. Since 2020, it has received premise violations for trash, weeds and as an unsafe property. The city boarded it up in August 2022. Officials had to board the property up again in October 2022. 

The Federal National Mortgage Association, known as Fannie Mae, has owned the property since the completion of a foreclosure. Officials from Fannie Mae declined to discuss the property, citing ongoing litigation.
