Vacant Stickers- 1539 4th St NW

1539 4th St NWI've been noticing lately bright yellow stickers on properties around the neighborhood declaring properties vacant.
That's helpful.
This vacant property is a 1539 4th St NW. It is owned by a C D Major of Forth Washington, MD since heavens knows when. It was determined vacant this year (yay DCRA). 

There  are others.

 The photo on the right I spotted on the 400 blk of N St NW. Unfortunately, I did not get the address. This had building permits and I by the time I noticed the ladder (and the guy on it) I had decided to walk away. But it is another example of the yellow vacant stickers going up around the city.

The permits are several years old (issued 12/12, I think) and very little work was done after they were issued. There was a fire at this house in 5/2012 and it's been vacant since then. Absentee landlord, displaced long-term renters. Just sad all around.

The city doesnt make it easy to purchase these homes either. If I wanted to buy this house, I'd have to track down the owner, which can be near impossible at times
