Is the property for sale? If it is and the neighborhood is really apreciating as you said, put an option on it to sell OR buy it and raze it if the property isn’t worth fixing.
If none of that would work, I would check into city ordiances about parked cars etc and see if the city might enforce some of their city code volations. (People like this usually DON"T clean things up just because you ask)
Last effort…cut your price IF YOU HAVE TO and move on.
