MI Fixer Upper Under $10,000

Once in a while, I like to throw in a real cheapo. This circa 1900 Folk Victorian is pretty amazing when you consider the price. It retains so many of its original features! Note the sunburst design over the porch gable and the dragonskin shingles in the top gable. Much of the first floor’s woodwork has been left original, including the lovely staircase. Some hardwood floors, clawfoot tub and original medicine cabinet complete the picture.

The street doesn’t look too bad. There’s a vacant lot next door, basketball court across the street and a school just a stone’s throw down the road. But when a house is this cheap, there’s a reason. I’ve found that it’s usually due more to the neighborhood than the work it needs. Check out Battle Creek’s livability score.
