At the original list price of $720,000, most Good Deal or Not (GDoN) commenters gave this home, which needed quite a bit of work, a thumbs down. Although it’s not going to work all the time, this looks like a good case for putting an offer out there for what you actually think a property is worth, despite the list price. While the asking price was eventually lowered to $695,000., it sold for more than $100,000. below that.
I didn’t have an opportunity to get inside this property while it was listed, but I pass by it frequently. It is unusual to find a fully detached single family home in this part of the city and I find the architecture quite intriguing. The interior pics suggest some interesting original details and I really hope that this turns out to be a thoughtful renovation.
