c.1953 Tennessee Starter Home $47K ~ Sold

508 9th St, Newport, TN 37821    $47,000 Pending ~ Sold for $57,200 on 11/02/2020


Here is a cute, bright little starter home in Newport, Tennessee (pop. 6,945). So many people nowadays have Tennessee on their radar as a good place to live, so prices have increased significantly in recent years. OHU50K finds it harder and harder to find decent cheap homes under our price constraints.
As a case in point, OHU50K featured an Under $75K Thursday Cookeville, TN, fixer upper on one acre back in January. I recall many readers commenting that the property was way overpriced. Well, the same house just increased in price to $85,000. Prices in the Tennessee market are getting high.


This cute as a button starter home may be petite but it has a mighty big personality. Conveniently located within walking distance to school and just moments to Walmart, restaurants and I-40. It is situated on a nice size lot with plenty of room for kids and pets to play safely. Several of the rooms have beautiful real hardwood floors.
There are 2 large bedrooms and 1 large full bathroom to share. The bathroom is so large that it also ideally holds a stackable washer and dryer. The kitchen is just off the dining area making entertaining a snap when family and friends get together for a special occasion meal. Spending time in this kitchen will be a delight not a chore. Plenty of storage in these gorgeous wooden cabinets and even ample room for a breakfast nook.
This little treasure would make a great starter home or for that savvy buyer looking for a fantastic investment property. This home is a steal at this ridiculously low price.
