    I thought this place would go pretty quickly when it was first listed since it’s a whole rowhouse with parking. I believe Redfin had it as a “hot home” the first weekend. But now it’s been on the market over a month (although delisted and then re-listed in that time).

      Yea this seems like a great deal!

      It’s really narrow, with what seems to be a rather questionable flow (well, complete lack thereof). I have a feeling this house needs a complete reno, which wont be cheap. With that said, I’d seriously consider this house myself.

        I agree the flow (and perhaps dated kitchen) is probably offputting for a lot of people – like the glass wall between the kitchen and back door. If I had $170k for the downpayment and barring any structural issues, I’d snap it up without a plan to renovate it – I kind of enjoy weird layouts and distinct spaces.
