Ok, I walked by it, yeah its the place, I never noticed that it takes up a whole block, there is a back guest house and something like a garage off Jackson that looks like its been turned into another apartment, but it looks really little. Anyway, I think its going to be 250k, if you look up the 38112 sales btwn 200-500k Im sure its there, but no pic up yet.
It's only changed hands once in all those years.
Same story I heard, apparently the last owner was a serious mod style buff, just look at that harliquin pattern front door, something is going on behind it. Otherwise its a unassumingly basic house with that walled in porch, I'd put a big gate on the side to enter and exit discreetly.
Theres something about the mansions in the hood in memphis, for less than 250 you can get a big N. Parkway house, almost the same house you can't get for less than 400 on Peabody near GSL. In the north theres alot more Prairie Style Sears Catalog houses, better neigborhood planning, the yards seem alot bigger. The used to call the area surrounding Snowden - University Park, now its Vollentine Evergreen. I've heard rumors that people from outside of town and even Europe are snapping up places here for investments.
I might look at the place but I don't think I'll be buying before the bottom falls out, I'll stay nomadic and driftin on the 53 bus.
