This week’s feature of an older home in an older neighborhood at an affordable price is this humble abode that is rich in character.
My research shows home values between $85,000 – $115,000 for properties around it. What I like about this home (other than the fact that it’s not a cookie-cutter house) is the detail around the home.
From the color palette, to the columns, to the choice of siding, and even the mailbox…it most certainly lends itself to being an interesting asset to the block. It’s within walking distance to downtown and bikeable to the riverfront.
Sure, it could use a fresh coat of white on the columns and a good weekend of landscaping (we just came out of winter), but my intentions aren’t to cherry pick every single one of the best houses in town. There is a lot of hidden potential within our current real estate market. It’s not always the most expensive or the newest-built homes that are the nicest.
