OHU50K NOTES

Located on a lovely road in the pleasing, low crime town of McDavid, Florida, this c.1930 fixer upper sits on 1.3 country acres. What do you think the building’s original purpose was? I haven’t been able to find out, but I’d guess maybe a filling station/living quarters.

FYI: Homes for sale in McDavid have a median listing price of $169,000 and a price per square foot of $107, so this fixer upper might be a good investment if the price can be reduced some more.

OHU50K NOTES 

Set on a tree-lined street of well-maintained older homes in a lovely, low-crime neighborhood of Keokuk, Iowa, this solid c.1890 handyman special definitely needs updating, but many original features are still intact. Its close proximity to the Mississippi River may be a primary reason why the price is cheap.

OHU50K NOTES

A fixer upper with a rich history.

After the Native Americans were removed to a reservation in Kansas,  their land in the western part of Monroe County, Iowa, was divided. William Highland selected a grove as his future home in May of 1843 where he built a log cabin for himself and his family. About the same time Adam Toole, John Frost, and John Vance made claims in the vicinity, and the place became known as Toole’s Point. This is the home of Adam Miller Toole (1794-1877) and his wife Susan Hamilton (1800-1860).

When Toole signed the deed for his original 40 acres, he signed his last name with the “e” at the end. Later the “e” was dropped. Toole was a gentleman farmer and was appointed postmaster of Tools Point in 1849. He and Susan raised six children.

The home needs significant work, and now sits on just little more than a third of an acre, but what a wealth of history behind it. The Tool name is well-known in the area, and Tools Point Park is around the corner from the home.

OHU50K NOTES

This c.1837 stone house is officially listed as the oldest house still standing in Clinton, Iowa. Known as the Harold Whitmer House, the fixer upper was built by John New out of with 8″ x 10″ hand hewn beams and two-foot thick native limestone walls . It originally had two above ground level rooms with more rooms were added over time.

The pre-Civil War home also served as an underground railroad station for escaped slaves traveling north. Its secret spot was a cistern in the sub-basement. In the main basement sits Clinton’s first telephone jack.

Over the years, the fixer upper has been owned by a Mrs. Aiken who operated a ferry service in town, a woodworking firm, and a trucking company.

OHU50K NOTES

Here is an opportunity for an investment property that looks out over the mountains and steeples of the sleepy town of North Adams, Massachusetts. OHU50K originally featured the home back in July 2018 when it was just under $50,000. It has now been reduced $15K to $34,900.

The c.1900 Victorian house sits on a hill just moments away from Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art and the historic downtown district of North Adams. Located in close proximity to Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, MassMoCA, shopping, groceries, pharmacies, restaurants, the beautiful Williams College in Williamstown, the property is also near plenty of outdoor recreational activities. Unfortunately, the roof needs to be addressed asap, and it is a cash/rehab loan only deal.

OHU50K NOTES  

We rarely find an old house under $50K in Nevada ~ even a fixer upper. So when we do come across one, we feel compelled to feature it.

As you can see, this c.1930 cottage needs a new roof, but both the exterior and interior have potential. The windows, hardwood floors, built-in and fireplace are attractive, as are the neighborhood’s low-crime rate and low taxes.
