House of Interest #2

Here it is...House of Interest #2! Click on the link below to view the home. - Bloomington Listing, $124,900, MLS#3641748 - Call 763-576-8286

Pros: Farmhouse in the city (awesome). It has a huge, partially-fenced yard with big trees. Ivy on the side of the home. Porch. 3 beds and 3 baths. The bead-board in the kitchen is nice! It's by far the largest home in the neighborhood, and says those other homes are worth between $180,000 and $230,000.

Cons: No idea about the neighborhood, but based on prices of the other homes it might be ok? The price is right, but it's a short sale (ugh). What is with that contemporary fireplace in a 1914 home? The hubs is worried about "old wiring", something that hasn't concerned him with other older homes, but is worth a thought. The bedrooms are small. Did you spot the Asian wildlife in the living room?

Let the commenting begin!

  1. Hmmm... again, my first thought is neighborhood. You'll be just west of the MoA, which puts you right near an almost-warehouse-like "office(?)" park. Think the UPS shipping headquarters. There are also a lot of shady apartment buildings nearby, but maybe this is in a tucked-away corner I haven't seen?!

    I think it looks like it might have more initial-livability potential than the first, but with both I'd be wary about what's going on under the surface: water damage, structural stuff, wiring, etc -- that can be sooo expensive and time-consuming to fix, especially since they both are a bit older!
