Don't Buy An UGLY House or a home where the design is so totally different than others. You may be sorry if you do. This seller "invested" tens of thousands into this home renovating over several yrs and then couldn't sell it. It was on market over 600 days in 3 listings and owner ended up selling for $70,000 less than original listing price. Owners originally purchased home because they could buy 3,500sf+/- for a lower price...and there was a reason for that lower price.
$400,000 Tear Down are somewhat unusual in Baton Rouge. Buyers in Steele Blvd neighborhood paid right at $400,000 buy the lot, home and fee to demolish old home to build new. Pretty Crazy for Baton Rouge Real Estate.
