Lot or House for Sale – Would you tear it down? Or build it up?

If you love old homes too, I hope you enjoy this little cottage I ran across the other day. It’s listed as a lot, and in a great neighborhood, so the sellers are thinking that no one will want to keep this 1930’s bungalow. I fell in love with it though!

The … Read More Walkability
