Pinch Me. This Stunning Old House is Just $30,000!

It’s true: You really can find anything on Craigslist. Case in point! Doesn’t this incredible $30,000 house remind you of the It’s a Wonderful Life set? Which one of you old house lovers is going to SWEEP. THIS. UP?!
(Thank you Sora, for passing this one along to me!)

Per the ad:
This is an historic 3 story home on 1/2 acre located in uptown Hillsboro, Ohio. It is zoned “commercial” so it has great flexibility. Surrounded by nice properties. The house needs work and exterior repairs as you can see in the pictures. Interior has very nice original woodwork and interior is in good condition. For someone that wants a beautiful historic home to renovate, this is ideal. For someone wanting a commercial site to build on, this is ideal. Taxes are very low. It is serviced by all utilities. It has a separate 2 car garage in back. $30,000. cash. No land contracts. Can close immediately.

    Beautiful! Will be a shame if it is bought and torn down. Hope it is brought back to life instead.
