House built in 1920. This is a great investment opportunity, renovations were started but not completed. New windows, wiring, lighting fixtures. There is work to be done but it has a good start and shouldn’t take much time, this house will rent in a heartbeat once finished several prospective renters stopped by when I was cleaning it up.
