245 5th St, Alvarado, MN 56710 $34,900 ~ Sold for $20k
I find it difficult to come up with old houses under $50K in Minnesota ~ even a handyman special. Despite the harsh climate, the market is high in the land of 10,000 lakes.
Here is one, however, in a very pleasant neighborhood. It has a few original features, nothing too exciting, but it is cute.
I realize the small front porch had to be enclosed as a weather barrier, but the home must have offered better curb appeal when the porch was open. In lieu of plywood, I would have installed glass, maybe stained glass, and a higher-end front door. The cottage windows are lovely, though.
Handyman special on corner lot with alley access may have room for garage, unfinished basement, 2 beds upstairs main floor living, dining kitchen and laundry/bath combo. Added 3 season porch well built on back side needs paint after drywall is all taped. Please submit all offers to the listing broker/agent.
