I posted this a while ago, and thought I had someone to live here, but it fell through. I am not moving until in between April and July, so it's not right away. I'm just trying to feel around for a response.

Duplex for sale or rent to own in the downtown area. Currently used as a single family home.

As a duplex, it would be 2 bedrooms up, 2 down. Comes with 2 fridges, 2 stoves, dishwasher on main floor, fenced in back yard. New roof in 2006. Some newer flooring. The bathroom upstairs has a clawfoot tub, so there's no shower, but there's a hand held shower hose. One bedroom on the main floor is quite cool in the winter, but if being used as a bedroom, would be okay with a space heater.

As a single family, we are using it as 3 bedrooms up (one being the living room), plus a craft room upstairs (kitchen) one bedroom down, and a computer room at the front. Living room and kitchen downstairs are quite large, around 12x16 each.

We need $75,000 firm for the house, because we just re-mortgaged for that amount, and I'm not going in debt to sell the house. The costs reflected below are based on $75,000.

PUC is currently $191 and Gas is $151 on equal billing, mortgage is $265/biweekly, then there's hot water tank rental at about $13/month, and house insurance at about $40/month, with a total cost of $925/month. (except for twice a year when there's a third biweekly payment of $265) If you wanted to live in one apartment and rent the other, you could easily get $500 above, or $600 below.

If renting to own, it would have to be through a lawyer, so you would need legal fees.

Sorry about that. If I put them up on the ftp site, it takes me forever to resize and upload them, where as I can just grab a whole folder in facebook in about 10 seconds and be done with it. I didn't realize people who didn't have a facebook account couldn't access them. Hubby is working on it right now. /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

I'm not saying this to be offensive in any way,

If you want your house to sell you should seriously consider updating your wall colors, expecially your kitchen, I'm sure you love it, but to someone who's not into bold and busy colors your house looks very overwhelming, even if you just bought a bunch of offwhite paint or a light neutral color and just made it all the same I think it would really help.

Jackie B

I appreciate the advice, but I'm not doing anything to it. It's a rent to own, and there are lots of people who would just be happy to have a home to call their own, and I'm sure whoever gets it will want to do their own thing anyway. No sense in doing cosmetics twice.

I agree with you on that..way to busy..the whole house made me dizzy looking at it..but everyone to their own choice I guess..
but don't expect to get the money you want for it ..been in this bissness for years got to stage the home to sell...

I have to agree ....when buyers see your house as a "fixer upper" where they have to put lot of money into it won't get you the price your hoping for. Make the house appealing to the people and ready to move in and you will get a fast sale and top dollar for it.
I did that and my house sold in one day and for the asking price.

I have someone who has already been in part of the house before coming to look at it this week, and they said they would take it. If they change their mind for some reason I will PM you.
