MOORE, Okla. - People who live near the home in Moore are furious.

They call it an eyesore and want it fixed.

Neighbors say the house on southwest 1st in Moore is a nuisance.

"It`s an excellent target for squatters or anybody trying to hop around through back yards, trying to break in through somebody`s house," said Cody Richardson, a neighbor.

When KFOR crews went to check out the home, we found workers cleaning it up.

"We got a work order to come out and clean up the yard, the inside of the house, make sure it`s ready to resell," said Holden Collins.

Collins, who works for Housing and Urban Development, is getting the home ready to go on the market.

Neighbors say while the clean up is welcome, they believe it will only be temporary.

They say the home is over-priced and won't sell.

Workers propped up the fence and cut a tree down, but neighbors still aren't convinced it will do any good.

"It`s just going to fall over the next time the wind blows, and it`s just all over again, you have to call them more, they`ll come out a few months later and push it back up and it`ll fall down again," said Richardson.

When we contacted the city about the home, they told us the only thing they can do is write the owners a ticket.
