Beautiful little house!

June 11th, 2017 at 12:09 pm

Our neighborhood is mostly big, early 1900s single-family or multifamily homes, interspersed with (non-high-rise) apartment buildings. There are these three darling little houses that we pass a lot on our walks, and we've always thought we'd love to own one and make it a rental property, preferably renting to a good friend of ours. They're only a couple blocks away from us.

We never thought they'd ever go on sale, but one of them did, just two days ago. $225K for a 900-square-foot home. It's a reasonable price for our neighborhood.

If we'd sold the UK flat this year I'd totally consider making an offer! But alas, we won't be listing our UK property until next spring at the earliest.

I see that this house is already "pending," and it's only been on the market 2 days. Sigh. I know a duplex would make a lot more sense as a rental property, but I just have such a crush on these adorable houses.

    That is a sweet little property and the hardwood floors look like they are in great shape. Sorry it didn't work out for you.

    We used to call these "grandma" houses--and I used to live on 33rd and Holmes--right around the corner!

    We call them the "Little Miss and Mr. Men" houses, because they look just the right size for those book characters! Big Grin

    I get crushes on cute little houses, too! There's one in my neighborhood -- I've never seen it for sale, though.
