I have looked at several homes in Wildwood over the last couple of months. In the $250,000 price range, these are mostly very small homes, functionally obsolete homes, fixers, and now, a short sale. Short sales make up a very small percentage of the market, but they are still a viable way to pick up a good value, and since short sales are not always fixers they set the bottom limit on the price of move-in ready homes. This home falls somewhere in between a fixer and move in ready home. Clearly, the deck has failed, and the deck is a second story structure, so it will be expensive to replace. However, the deck already has metal rails, that might be salvageable. The inside is actually pretty good, all the living on the main floor, fairly conventional ranch style lay out of rooms and space allocation. But it is on a steep up slope lot, parking is challenge. The two car garage under the home is roomy and finished, but its a long trek up an internal staircase to the living quarters.
