    Quote:haha, well your assumption is partially correct. the house is amazing, but very old. it was built in 1923, purchased in 1926 by a man who passed in 2003 and now it is mine.

    so needless to say there is going to be quite a renovation. the fact that it's a fixer, plus the market slump = very cheap housing right now.
