This is the most interesting site i have ever found!!!
Thank You all for your input
Ive been renting this house for 3 years.
5 bedroom/1.5 bathrooms 3 story row house.
When i moved here it was unoccupied for about 2 years,the owner raised his family here, he moved into a single home, and rented this one. He had a real bad tenant that wreaked the house. He made repairs(took him about 1 year to fix it all)and put it on the market. It didnt sell so he put it up for rent again for $650.00 per month/reduced it to $550.00 per month with the deal being he could show it…still on the market! Needless to say it didnt sell yet only 2 people have showed up to see it and that was about 2 years ago. Across the street is a working mans bar with a fair amount of noise in the summer. When i moved in it was listed for $74,500.00.
6 months ago the house at the other end of the row, just like this one, sold for $50,000.00 and it was in need of updating…windows, carpet, ect…just like this one! Im a handy guy and i dont bother him with the little things that go wrong(it takes him too long to show up to fix things, and he gets upset about it) What are your thoughts on this property? I know he wants to sell but with me here he has no “pain” How would you work this one?
Im sorry this was long but i wanted to give you a history on the place.
