Newly Listed: UCity Fixer-Upper in Great Location for Just $100,000

Call it whatever you like–a fixer-upper, a diamond in the rough, a house needing TLC–this one could be a rather good deal. The intersection of 49th and Osage is prime property in University City, right between pretty Pine Street and lovely Larchwood and within walking distance of Clark Park, Baltimore Avenue, Cedar Park and trolley access to Center City. It’s an area well known to Eds & Meds students and professionals, whose presence brings increasing new businesses.

A smaller home–also an investor’s special–at 49th and Larchwood sold a couple months ago for $340,000, and that wasn’t the only fixer-upper in the area that had a higher asking price than this one. This is an especially low price, even for a complete mess.
