This beautiful waterfront home in Binghamton, New York, sits right on the banks of the Chenango River. The home offers natural woodwork, cast iron radiators, stained glass, wraparound porch and original doors and trim. While the home is beautiful and the setting is lovely, you may want to check the flood zones….and the taxes.

After the mini tower, two-story wraparound front porch, leaded glass windows and hardwood floors, did you notice the old bathroom doorknob? Love it. This c.1910 Fixer upper in Calumet, Iowa, sits on more than half an acre. It could be great again!

711 Girard St, Metropolis, IL 62960       $39,900 Sold 10/10/19 $21,500




Tom Sawyer had a field day in this c.1950 fixer upper in Metropolis, Illinois. Underneath the cover of all that white paint, however, are some lovely original elements. High ceilings, built-ins, fireplace mantel, transoms and moldings are waiting to be stripped or refreshed.



705 N 24th St, Paducah, KY 42001   $40,000 Sold 1/15/20 $16,000


I’m in love with this fairy tale fixer upper in Padukah, Kentucky! From the stone and brick work to the built-ins and black and white kitchen, this brick beauty brings us back to a once upon a time when the best materials were used to construct a family home. Even the brackets on the facade of the garage are lovely. Add in low taxes, relatively low crime and a pleasant neighborhood, and $40K seems like a great deal.
