    This just sold a couple months ago. I wonder if the new owner always planned on using it as rental.

      Well, it is a cluster of a remodel. Who would want to live there?

    why do they still have security bars on the windows I probably can understand the basement one- but not the main level window. Either way- $5400 to rent? I own 2 homes and mortgage is less than that on both of them. yikes!

      It’s a 5 BR, I’d imagine more than one person is paying.

      It is priced to be a group house. No family could afford a 5,000$ rent but 5 people at +/-1,000$ a pop wouldn’t be bad (for people willing to live in group houses). With it’s location I bet it will fill fast

    This looks like the owners got part of the way through renovating, and then needed some extra cash to finish it later… Very confused by this place. Although the price for 5br is good.

      This what the house looked like when it sold in March.

        Yeah, they even used the photos from the sale listings. 2 bedroom basement was listed as a separate apartment. Wonder why they’re not renting both out separately – that usually gets you more $. Perhaps basement not a legal unit so they’re going the whole house route? Listing said the long-term basement tenants wanted to stay. Which is likely why we don’t see anything but a kitchen photo of that unit. Guess they are gone now. Their rent probably went up a lot. This place sold for what seems like the relatively low price of $825, and sold pretty quickly, for slightly over the asking price. But still for double what was paid when it sold in ’03. It’ll rent to some group. There are families who pay that much for rentals (people here temporarily, or for a place to live ’til they buy and/or renovate a place), but they are probably looking elsewhere, and for true single family houses, not two units.

    If you completely gut the interior, you really shouldn’t describe it as a charming Victorian.
