JUST SOLD! Ogden Victorian Diamond In The Rough
Published On: January 10, 2017 Posted by: Jeremy Peterson
I just closed on the sale of this unique and amazing Victorian home located at 2002 Jackson Ave. in Ogden, Utah. I originally listed this home for the owner in 2013 for $79,500. At that time, the real estate market was still in early recovery and the condition of the property prevented buyers from moving forward on purchasing and fixing up the home. The owner didn’t want the home to languish on the market and after several months of little interest, we pulled the listing.
Recently, another agent took a crack at listing the home. The home was listed at $99,800. This time though, the owner had vacated and left a bunch of “friends” at the home to watch over the place. They weren’t doing a very good job.
Another interesting caveat about this property is the presence of a commercial building on the lot as well. This was a former neighborhood market back at the turn of the century.
The home boasts nearly all of its original woodwork and hardware. It will need to be restored but should doll up beautifully.
We offered $100,000 on the home using a hard money lender for financing. The seller accepted and we closed in two weeks. Our clients intend to renovate the home and prepare it for resale as a fully refurbished and functional home. Look forward to photos in the coming months! Congrats to our buyers!
