1117 12th Avenue, Greeley: $32,000. 2 bed, 3/4 bath, 995 sq ft, 1895, $100 Down with $1100 repair escrow, which is unbelievable. Oh boy. You ever seen Hoarders? Yeah? See the episode where the lady had cats upon cats upon cats in her house and had no idea how many layers of living and dead cats were stinking up the joint? She lived 1117 12th Avenue in Greeley. Well, at least it smells like she did. I didn't even bother to take pictures, and a video walk through would have lasted 4 seconds. I almost dropped my keys on the floor which would have sucked because they'd still be sitting there and I'd be in Greeley getting my car re-keyed. Do you like weeds, dirty floors and have a lack of odor receptors? Here's your place. Click here for more info, pics or a showing. Minor update: this place just received a SECOND price reduction, owner occupant bids are due 7-13-2010, investors thereafter if available.
Relist: 37266 WCR 65, Galeton: $41,250. 3 bed, 2 bath, 1623 over full basement w/ some finish, 2001. Reappraised, reduced and re-remarked: "Manufactured home. Previous owner shared neighbor's well, but there is no formal agreement. Septic tank subject to freezing in winter; appraiser recommends a survey of the septic tank to determine if it is buried deep enough and if it meets lot line requirements. Foundation inspection recommended due to moisture in the basement- may include replacement of gutters and regrading. Plumbing and heating systems are inoperable. Buyer must obtain permit and correct county code violations: shingles coming off roof, deck is unsafe, mold-like substance in basement, and loose electrical receptacles. Property was apprased 5/14/10 and valued at $55000." Need I say more? By the way, the gentleman that supposedly shares the well doesn't much care to share it. He's also given me a bunch of other invaluable info. My advice? Unless you want to pay cash to buy something that needs major work out in the middle of nowhere (and yet be somewhat close to your neighbors), I'd pass. And yes I've been in this one.

It comes back to us a few grand cheaper but otherwise the same. Owner occupant bids due 7-13-2010, investors thereafter if available.
1219 23rd Ave, Greeley: $70,400. 3 bed, 1 bath, 1242 sq ft, 1956, 2 car attached, holes in roof/ceiling: 1 big one; $100 down with $1320 repair escrow. Here's an example of HUD's hands-off approach to selling being a huge drawback. Listed in the repair escrow items is $880 for roof repair. Had the repair been done, I wouldn't have walked in the house and found half the living room ceiling sitting in a big, slushy pile on the hardwood floor. As it is now, I'm sure there are other issues beyond simply fixing the roof (repairing the gaping hole in the ceiling comes to mind) which could have been avoided had the roof been fixed. If not for the location on 23rd Ave I might tell you to check this one out. Instead, I'll just present the facts and let you make your own decisions. Check out the video for more.

1952 29th Ave #3, Greeley: $84,600. 3 bed, 2.5 bath, 1696 sq ft over partial finished bsmt, 2 car attached, 1977, $100 down with $275 repair escrow. Here's a different one. The most shocking thing about this place is that yours truly had no idea this little subdivision even existed. It consists solely of identical townhouse/duplexes that have well maintained gray exteriors. The interior? Well, it needs some love. Carpets are trashed and if the exterior looks like 1999, the interior definitely feels more like the 1977 build it is. The master is awesome though and has its own fireplace. This place also has a fenced yard and the oversized 2 car garage (with 2 separate doors). Might be worth a look see. I do have a video of this joint but am having issues getting it uploaded for some reason. Pics start here: http://captainfantasy.shutterfly.com/12398 Bids reviewed daily!
