3 Bed/1.75 Bath with 1,341 sqft on a total lot size of 7,488 sqft built in 1956 is currently available for $349,999. This home was designed with the "Cinderella" architecture that I talked about here that can be found throughout the Valley. According to the listing, this home will be filmed for HGTV on June 12th but no mention of what show or the reason. This home was last sold on May 11, 2009 for $310,000 as a bank sale so I am assuming that the current owners spent a considerable amount of money to renovate the home but probably also utilized the $8K tax credit to help with the renovation. For any prospective buyers, keep in mind that this home is located on a busy Owensmouth street and verify that there is copper plumbing, adequate A/C, and insulation.
