    Often wondered if someone would take this project on. Once you remove everything from the walls and re-drywall the interior, you may have something you can really work with even if you do not reconfigure it right away or if at all.

    Was this really 28 days at $650K? I swear this was being offered originally for much more. We took a tour several months ago and I agree with stacksp: Large lot, great property, but needed quite a bit of work. Layout was kind of weird also. I think this had been on the market for much longer than the 28 days mentioned.

      It originally started much higher than 650. I recall maybe 2 or 3 price adjustments from somewhere around 759k

    This was definitely on the market for longer than 28 days. It might have gone off the market and come back on. We looked at it, maybe in January or February. It was a pretty crazy house, but if you have the money to remodel, I can see the appeal.

    Yeah, this definitely sat on the market for a while. Glad to see it finally sold. It has good bones but I wouldn’t want to take on the work.
