UH ... you seem to have misunderstood the purpose of this forum. It is for discussing HOW TO SELL homes.


 o
RE: 245 Haldey Ave Oakwood Ohio

gardenweb's rules prohibit use of the forums for selling;
if you want to place an ad, you should email gardenweb & find out how to do it.

RE: 245 Haldey Ave Oakwood Ohio

Looks to me like a ticked-off former wanna-be-buyer who is posting the unsatisfactory inspection report...


 o
RE: 245 Haldey Ave Oakwood Ohio

Sounds like a pretty typical inspection report for a home built in 1930.

Seems to me that this wanna be buyer doesn't have a clue about old homes and thinks they are being cute by posting this report.

For a price in the ballpark of 150,000-165,000, I'd think this is a very fine house!


 o
RE: 245 Haldey Ave Oakwood Ohio

Even spelled the street name wrong in the subject.


 o
RE: 245 Haldey Ave Oakwood Ohio

I;ve never seen so thorough a report. Are 4 windows sided over normal?
Oakwood is a big "Name" neighborhood immediately off of Dayton proper. Despite the rosy picture the Dayton ABR is posting on its MLS site I think real estate here is struggling pretty good.
