Rebecca from Baltimore says, "In the early nineties, I purchased a home in the neighborhood below Federal Hill, next to a hardware parts wholesaler called Leonard Jed Industrial Supplies. I could not have anticipated that years later, a developer would persuade Leonard Jed to move, get the city to change the zoning, and then build townhouses originally priced at a million dollars apiece! (They've since been dropped to between 600 and 700,000.) Speculators all over the city have been buying low priced houses and flipping them, jacking up the cost of living for many of the longtime and moderate income residents. Where's the fairness in that?"
