The listing Realtor describes the property this way:
"Fantastic Deal And A Great Location! Would Be Perfect For An Investor Or Someone Who Could See The Potential Of This Property. Home Sits On Two Lots. It Is A 3 Bedroom 2 Bathroom 1,000.00 Sq ft. Brick Cottage That Needs TLC. Bring All Offers."
According to the Monroe County Property Appraiser the existing house is 999 sq ft in size. That figure does not include the semi-enclosed Florida room that adds another 200 sq ft or more of living space. The house itself has three bedrooms and two baths. The house was built in 1954 (59 years ago). A lot of 59 year olds get face lifts. It's time this house got one. A new owner would likely gut the interior and redo the kitchen and baths. If I bought the house I would add wind impact resistant windows and doors to reduce long term wind storm insurance premiums.
The lot is extra large - 94' x 101' or 9397 sq ft. The house is set back about 20 feet from Thompson and about the same from Catherine which provides lots of privacy. The yard on both sides is densely landscaped with tropical foliage. In fact I think the foliage needs a good haircut. Potential buyers need to understand the value that the existing trees adds so this property. If you hired a landscaper to go up to Homestead to buy, haul, and replant a 9397 sq ft lot you would spend thousands and thousands of dollars in design, purchase, and planting costs.
