Here’s a house on Rose Street, near Southgate. Here the situation is the opposite – the outside is shabby and those windows have to go but the interior, while painted in awful colors, really isn’t that bad. And what makes this a real possibility is a very nice back yard – it needs a trim but the vegetation is mature and there is nice private feeling. And the location is less than 10 minutes from downtown. The bank wants $91,900 – realtors tell me a bank will often come down a little, usually 3 to 5 percent – so if you’re lucky with your repair bills you’ll end up with a nice solid house in the middle of town for just over $100,000.
