    This house looks better than a dwelling in the mere “good bones” category. A look around the immediate neighborhood in streetview reveals a mix of late Victorian and 20th century homes into the 1920’s and ’30’s. Most of the properties look fairly well kept in the older streetview so the old real estate wisdom of buying a fixer upper house in a nicer neighborhood may apply here. Taxes are very low even for Missouri. The good period features include a nice staircase, (which may be hiding some decent hardwoods under the paint) a fretwork divider/spandrel; and a nice columned beveled mirror mantel which is likely to be Oak or another furniture grade hardwood under the paint, as well as pocket doors. If the location is deemed acceptable, (and a thorough inspection of the house is conducted) this might be a good candidate for a buyer looking for a starter old house. Add some nice paint of two to three colors on the exterior (there appears to be a stained glass transom in front showing in one of the photos) clean up the interior, and you’d have a decent late Victorian to call home. I know almost nothing about the town of Paris, MO, so the suitability of the community would also need to be examined. When an old house is bought, the buyer also is buying into the community where it is located. With a manageable 1,856 sq. feet with two baths and 3 bedrooms this house should appeal to a variety of buyers. I’d hope it would not be bought for long term rental use-it’s a better house than that.

    Hopefully this home will find an owner who wants to restore and not flip.

    At this price it’s a steal!
