“Long time reader, first time emailer here – thought this would be a good candidate for your Good Deal or Not section. Those porches are incredible. My guess is the property gets grabbed by condo developers, but my wish is that it gets rehabbed to its former glory. Would like to hear what others think.”

Wow there are some amazing bones in this house. But like previous houses that needed some work – I wonder how much (moderate) renovations would cost. Any guesses? Do you think the current asking price of $845,000 sounds reasonable?
