Default Bad homesick.. Then I see THIS! If you like old homes, check it out

How cool is this place?

I get homesick and I hit the real estate sites..... The area is seriously depressed sadly, and these old beauties are getting neglected and being given away... I mean this is a gorgeous century home that you could throw a rock into the ocean from!! For $54,900!! And it's in need of updates but not run down badly...

LOVE it, absolutely love it...sometime if it's just me, hubby, dog and cats we wouldn't need lots of rooms or land, but the old woodwork, stained glass, tin ceilings, so beautiful!!!!

Terrible shame. Especially when a couple thousand km away, condos that are about 500 square feet are being sold for $300,000+.

That house is worth soo much more...doesn't make sense to me.

It breaks my heart when I go home and see the ones that have fallen into disrepair... They were so grand in their day, and now no one's looked after them or could afford to look after them and they're mostly being torn down now... If I win a big lottery I'd snap up a bunch of them fix them up and I don't know what I do with them... something to preserve them
