The two bedroom, one bath Maine fixer upper was built in 1879. It could be a sweet little place, but it is certainly a project. In its favor are hardwood floors, French doors, clawfoot tub, and public water and sewer.
Quiet neighborhood, centrally located to everything! Close to the Mall, Childcare, Schools, Hospital, Theater, Restaurants, Grocery Stores, Big Box Stores, the Airport! Built in the late 1800’s, built to last forever! The layout is pleasing and the house is medium in size, which matches a lot of what buyers & renters today are looking for, something affordable & manageable. Set between single family homes, the neighborhood mix is houses & apartments. This home is similar to the age of most of the homes in this neighborhood. 2-3 Bedrooms (if you are OK with a ”pass-thru setup then definitely 3 bedrooms!), the enclosed back porch has been used as a 1st floor bedroom. One full bathroom. Don’t let the stuff set on the porch & outside this home fool you, it’s pretty cleaned out inside (watch the video house tour!)! You’ll be able to make a running start on getting it set to rent or flip! Public water, public sewer makes this property an easier DIY. It wasn’t winterized, though, so plan to fix a few plumbing issues. Forced Hot Air heat, so this should be good to go once power is back on & it gets serviced. This will be your easiest fix & flip/rent project yet!
