House Hunting? Here Are 7 Fixer-Uppers Around Columbus Waiting For The Perfect Owner

Searching for the perfect home can be exhausting.

Sometimes you look at so many houses that it gets hard to even know what you like anymore. That can be especially true when you’re on the hunt for a fixer-upper.

It’s hard to see the potential in a home and looking at the list of things that need to be done can be overwhelming, but don’t give up! The perfect project is out there, you just need to find it. Let’s get inspired by these 7 fixer-uppers around the city. You’ll be ordering subway tiles and light fixtures in no time.

224 S Harris Ave.

Listed by Ajay Pandya, E-Merge Real Estate

Neighborhood/Community: Central Hilltop
Specs: 3 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, and 1,432 square feet
Price: $91,000
What we love: The exterior is where you’ll need to get your fixer-upper fix on this place. The interior could definitely use some love as well, but it’s had a decent amount of work done already and with some simple additions like new floors, it could easily be a space you live in while renovating.


1213 E Livingston Ave.

Listed by Siyum Tefera, One Click Yours

Neighborhood/Community: Driving Park
Specs: 4 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, and 2,158 square feet.
Price: $119,900
What we love: So this house is definitely on the extreme side of renovation, but think of the possibilities. The specs say 4 bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms, but let’s be real, those are really more like guidelines. You can create whatever you want to in this 2,000+ sq. ft. gem. Plus, that second story balcony is just begging to be transformed into an oasis.


149 E Northwood Ave.

Listed by Todd DeHays, Connect Realty

Neighborhood/Community: Near Campus
Specs: 4 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and 1,297 square feet.
Price: $279,900
What we love: I know what you’re thinking. It’s probably something along the lines of, “Why is a recently renovated home on a fixer-upper list?” But I think this house is a great option for people who are taking on their first fixer-upper project. Yes, this home has been somewhat updated, but there’s still plenty of work left to do, particularly in the kitchen. What we love about it is that it’s a challenge, but not overwhelming.


52 Leland Ave.

Listed by Nicole Yoder-Barnhart, HER Realtors

Neighborhood/Community: Sharon Heights
Specs: 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and 1,164 square feet.
Price: $199,900
What we love: Um, what wouldn’t we love about this precious cape cod. It’s close to Clintonville and Beechwold, it’s got some great features like the adorable fireplace in the living room, and it has the potential to make an awesome home or rental property.


1198 E Whittier St.

Listed by Misty Lynn, Core Ohio Realty

Neighborhood/Community: Driving Park
Specs: 3 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, and 1,464 square feet.
Price: $115,000
What we love: This beauty is so close to being an absolute dream, it just needs the perfect owners to take it the rest of the way. It’s in an up-and-coming neighborhood, it has tons of character, and it doesn’t need any major floorplan changes.


1098 Peters Ave.

Robert Vance, Heart & Home Property Management, Inc.

Neighborhood/Community: Milo-Grogan
Specs: 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and 1,144 square feet
Price: $95,000
What we love: Milo-Grogan is such a fantastic neighborhood. It’s a growing community that’s close to downtown amenities and the homes in the area have tons of hidden character. We all know that I’m a sucker for a beautiful cased opening and those oversized windows have me swooning. Imagine how happy your plants would be.


3271 Park St.

Listed by Leigh Kuhn, Xtreme Realty, Llc

Neighborhood/Community: Downtown Grove City
Specs: 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and 1,031 square feet
Price: $129,900
What we love: I’m not going to sugar coat it, friends. This house needs a lot of work. But it’s not a complete gut job. That fireplace deserves to be restored to its former glory and you could be the hero it’s been waiting for.
