    Elm Street? Just in time for Halloween!

  • The house two doors down is going for $899k, seems like a deal to me.

  • Yikes — looks pretty bleak in the photos. Obviously it needs a lot of work, but I suspect it doesn’t look quite so bleak in real life.

  • yeah – given that houses of this size in great shape in this neighborhood are going for upwards of 900k, id say this could be a good deal for someone wanting to put in some work.

  • Probably priced for a bidding war, from the photos (which may be misleading) most of it appears to be cosmetic, the floors seem to be in good condition even if not the most stylish flooring.

    • I’m skeptical a 110-year-old home in a visible state of disrepair has only cosmetic issues. Plan on at least six figures to get it up to habitable condition… and probably double that to make it even remotely desirable.

  • I’d say good deal and guess it goes a little over or around asking. The house two doors down for $899 looks over priced, so there isn’t a ton of room here for a flipper to make money. The 899 house has been on the market for two weeks, which is actually a lot of time. Houses that are priced right are going under contract quick around here. The 899 house is totally done and the basement is finished. This house is in need of TLC without a finished basement. I think the other one is even a stretch at 8. You get above a certain price and you expect things like parking, which is even an issue this far away from things. But it only takes one person who really wants to live there. It is a nice block.
