Today, OHU50K is featuring three dirt cheap Midwestern – each a handyman special under $30K. This c.1916 cottage is a foreclosure in the low crime small town of Adams, Wisconsin, (pop. 1.967).
The diamond windows and original interior front door are joys! Also note the fireplace mantel, built-ins and hardwood floors. I like the way the realtor puts a positive spin on the handyman special condition of the house with, “Enjoy the process of skill development in renovation.”
Bring back this once custom home to life in the Village of Adams near downtown amenities. Enjoy the process of skill development in renovation. There are some adorable original features in this home and hardwood floors that will really shine. Basement has some good natural light. As-is sale, all measurements to be verified by buyer.

This c.1905 handyman special in Galesburg, Illinois, is another foreclosure. While it appears the realtor’s 1.66 acre lot stat is an error, the home’s location in a low crime neighborhood on a brick street overlooking a soccer field is a plus.
Love the newel post and the fact that the woodwork is not painted! No pics of the kitchen, though.
Large 2 story handyman special with 3 bedrooms 2 baths. Large lot, lots of potential!! This is a Fannie Mae HomePath property.

Here is another home for which I’m glad to say that Tom Sawyer and his white paint left the neighborhood before slapping his brush on the c.1905 home’s woodwork. This home needs the least amount of work of the handyman specials featured today. You have to love the natural wood of the pocket doors, fireplace mantel and bullseye molding. Hardwood floors, wainscoting, updated bath and that amazing floor-to-ceiling kitchen cupboard also grace the home.
Although 45 S. 45th Street is in a low crime working man’s neighborhood of similar older homes in Terre Haute, Indiana, it is located just one street away from a somewhat higher crime area.
