Cincinnati Historic Preservation Bargains

Did you know that right now in Hamilton County (mostly in downtown urban neighborhoods) there are 470 properties on the market priced under 20,000.00!

Now may be just about the best time to find that "dream house" you are looking for for less than the cost of a car. I spent a while online looking around and there are some really great bargains out there just need your touch and some sweat equity.

So if you are looking for that "grand house" perhaps this property at 3426 Kensington place might fit the bill? This Brick Second Empire has 5 bedrooms, 2 baths, 3564 square feet, plenty of room for all those antiques and 'stuff'. Offered by Kurt Lamping, Star 1 Real Estate 513-662-8800. There are hardwood floors under carpet and of course the usual "remuddling" but this one doesn't look too bad. It has some nice mantles and transoms and its BRICK!!!!! This home would cost you a couple a hundred grand in any major city as it sits. Some paint, some wallpaper and a lot of hard work and you will be congratulating yourself in a few years about how smart you were to but a historic home before prices went through the roof AND you are saving the historic architecture of this great city.
Do you know of a house that is just 'screaming' for someone to come along and save it? If so send us clear photo and a contact person and we will feature it here.
