There's so much about this picture that needs explanation. How the hell the ceiling got stained like that and how much liquor it took to make building the lower cabinets out of cinderblock sound like a good idea to start. Also WTF is with that ductwork to nowhere coming out of the foundation?

And why are the cabinets pulls so lopsided on the two uppers on the right?

.... but it does look like they left you some soy sauce... or is that a can of air freshener?

Oh no, the front pool is still there. They actually added a safety fence around it since the last listing, presumably for insurance purposes

A 5/3, 4096 sq ft house in the Heights? I'm sure I can find comps for $1.2 million.

I'm sure you can too. Why don't you list a few and we'll compare them to this one.

Here are a few:

https://www.har.com/1021-waverly-street/sale_79344065

https://www.har.com/1006-omar-street/sale_36905390

Admittedly, these don't have quite the square footage. So for folks wanting the extra space, the 27th street house should be considered.

But here's a better comp just a few lots down on same street. Same sized lot, but it's cleared. Dropped from $255,000 to $225,000 and has been on the market for 536 days... https://www.har.com/1209-e-27th-street/sale_39553917

Those houses are nice, but don't have near the character and charm of the 27th street house.

None of those comps have a pool or stained concrete. That's where the value is.

None of those comps have multiple pools or stained concrete. That's where the value is.

I pass by this house every once in a while and I've always felt that it's just got that stale, boxy 80s feeling (the picture of the "front" of the house is misleading). When I saw it was for sale, I checked it out hoping that the inside was a totally different story. Nope. What a weird-ass mixture of...features. And the pics do it no favors.

I know it isn't as a terrible as many of the listings above, but I just had to share my little disappointment.

And word decor is TERRIBLE. It's like the owner went and cleaned out a Hobby Lobby.

One of every kind of instructional sign + naming your kid groff. Wow.....

The signs stuck on the wall everywhere may be the worst part about it. It's like an 'I'm with stupid' shirt for your house.

Is Groff not their last name? Lookin at the listing and it appears it is a realtor selling their own house

If that's a realtor selling their own house, they're a really crappy realtor. My realtor would clean my house himself before he'd let that s-show of a mess go online under his name.

That one has been listed on here a few times I think. Though it seems they have come down in price maybe..
The Fife
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Price is comparable for houses in the area that don't need work so it's gonna be on the market a while. There are some areas missing flooring, lots of casing and trim missing, and no appliances or countertops in the kitchen. Doesn't that keep the place from being eligible for conventional financing?

HDR can only do so much. Everything about the place says 'wash your hands after touching!'

Welcome, try not to look up when you come in the door!

Lenders don't care about things like complete kitchens or holes in the ceiling, and buyers don't care about having a place to put a dishwasher.


Sad to say that this one is just over a block from home.

I do not see how realtors will even allow these pics.
