I just got into contract with one of my clients on this property in Oak Park. It’s a fantastic 1890’s Victorian.
We just did the home and pest inspection yesterday. I love days like this when the nspections moves forward without any big surprises. I say this because every home has issues, especially ones built-in the late 1800’s.
Can you believe this home, in a decent part of Oak Park, in reasonable condition, is selling for a little over $100,000? The home inspector asked if it is on slab or has a crawl space… I said “neither. It’s a walk space!” This basement (well it’s above ground) has at least 9 foot high ceilings! My first thought when I viewed the property was, finish this out and double your square footage!
I was shocked with how little dry rot there was, plus a new foundation (no bricks) and an almost-new roof!
Check out the pics.
