A gorgeous home not far from Rockford is for sale but you'll need to bring a toolbox and your imagination.

Not saying that the home at 304 South 4th Street in Dekalb is a dump, but it does need some TLC.

I'm a sucker for hardwood floors and this place is no exception. They aren't immaculate and could use a little work but if you're starting from the ground up on a rehab project, knowing the floor isn't a disaster is a good start.


Attention Investors & Rehabbers! Great investment property. Bring ideas and restore this beautiful Historic Victorian. Huge wrap-around porch. If you love old Victorian houses - you will find a lot here to love.

This historic home is also set up with stained glass windows, and pocket doors along with a one-of-a-kind fireplace.

if you've restored classic cribs like this one, bringing this place back to its former glory should be a breeze.

Built in 1889 and currently listed at $84,900, the space is complete with four bedrooms and two baths.

There's just so much potential. Old home lovers such as myself can only sit back and dream.

The home is currently contingent meaning that an offer has been made and accepted but there are some conditions that need to be met by the buyer or seller before made final.
