Lovely Century-Old Five Bedroom Rockford Home For Under $40,000
It's not often you can find a century-old starter home.
It's also not often where you'll find a century-old home priced as low as this one.
When the place comes with as many bedrooms listed, it might not qualify as a starter when I think about it.
Then again, this place, priced at $39,900, is too good a deal to pass up.

This house put a smile on my face. Certainly not for the crime rate, but for the inviting front porch, hardwood floors, beamed ceiling, 5-panel doors, arched doorways and that amazing floor-to-ceiling original kitchen cupboard! When I saw what’s in the basement, I even let out an, 'Awww.'
The home is nearly 1800 square feet but sits on a 6500 square foot lot. Along with the five bedrooms and a bath, there's a large basement and what appears to be an attic.
Lovely hardwood floors through most of main level and lots of windows for beautiful natural light. The striking living room features wood beams on the ceiling.
Right now, it's a big-time seller's market, and it looks like this home is being vastly undervalued. If you're looking for a place, even just to fix and flip, you could do way worse than this property.
