On the hunt for the perfect fixer-upper?
If renovating a house sounds like your dream, you’re in luck. There are some great properties all around Columbus that could be totally transformed with some love and hard work. Here are five fixer-uppers in some of the hottest neighborhoods around the city for under $250,000.
Some of them are complete, top to bottom rehabs, while others only require some cosmetic touches and personal taste. Let’s dive in.
Neighborhood/Community: Franklin Park
Specs: 2,015 square feet
What we love: This home has been completely gutted and is ready for you to make it your own. With a little over 2,000 square feet, you can create your dream 3-4 bedroom home.
Neighborhood/Community: Merion Village
Specs: 4 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, and 1,607 square feet
Price: $149,000 (Cash only)
What we love: This house was originally built in 1890 and although it’s in need of a big rehab, it’s got great character. It also sits on a massive, 6,000 square foot lot. Not too shabby for the area.
Neighborhood/Community: Southern Orchards
Specs: 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and 1,848 square feet
What we love: With a little elbow grease this Southern Orchards home will be transformed. It has hardwood floors, incredible woodwork, and a large open attic space.
Neighborhood/Community: Fifth by Northwest
Specs: 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and 2,121 square feet
What we love: This adorable little bungelow needs some love, but what we’re obsessed with is the location. You’re just a stones throw away from all of the shops, restaurants, and amenities of Grandview.
Specs: 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and 881 square feet
What we love: You know that one fixer-upper they always show on the home renovations shows that doesn’t actually need a ton of work? That’s this charming ranch. It could use a few touches and upgrades throughout, but this is a great option for those looking for a sort-of-fixer-upper.
