Neighborhood/Community: Central Hilltop
Specs: 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1,712 sq. ft.
Price: $59,900
Things We Love: The thing we love about this house is that we have no idea what is going on in there. There’s only one photograph and a very brief description that reads “Now a single family that was previously a two-family duplex, could easily be converted back to a 2 family. Rent is $600 per month. Curb offers only. Do not disturb tenants.” Who doesn’t love a good mystery?
