Re: 1232 N. Laura Street

I would like a project, but need to be realistic about how large of a project. How large of a project?? :) JaxUnicorn you'd think yours would be an easy question to answer, but now that I think about it it's hard to describe. I have looked at a couple dozen houses over the past 2 or so years in var...

Re: 1232 N. Laura Street

Re: 1232 N. Laura Street

Thanks Joe for all of the great info! My guesstimate of $150K was including a tile roof for the main house and the garage/apartment. An assumption that the electrical would need to be redone. The light fixture in the upstairs hall bath did not have a box and was hanging from the ceiling and the swit...

Re: 1232 N. Laura Street

Wow, thanks for taking the time to tell us about it! It does sound like a great property with a pretty hefty purchase price. Maybe they will lower the price after a bit and you'll still be looking! But in the meantime, there are many other properties in Springfield that are available for less money...

Re: 1232 N. Laura Street

I was able to tour the house this evening. I'm going to walk you guys through...The entry is beautiful, the fireplace gives it a grand feeling to me. The floors throughout the first floor are an original parquet with a beautiful inlay border, they need some minor patching. The trim on the first floo...

Re: 1232 N. Laura Street

$20k for the roof minimum. Yes. Please share pics. Who is the listing agent? I didn't realize it was sale either! I was guessing between $20-$30K for a new shingle roof, tile would probably be double. I believe the listing agent is Brian Brown, through Third and Main. There seems to be quite a few ...

Re: 1232 N. Laura Street

Thanks, I have an appointment to see the inside of the house tomorrow late afternoon. I purchased the book about Jacksonville Architecture a while back. I was happy to see that this was one of the houses listed. Too bad that the original tile roof was removed :cry: I have no idea what the cost of a ...

So, what can you guys tell me about the above address? It is a beautiful place, but needs some TLC. The listin...

If I had the budget I wouldn't hesitate to buy it. Mine is about half that so I'll have to settle for a smaller scale project;-)
