"Charming" Highland Park Listing Raises Red Flags

Before glancing through the pictures, this 2-bed, 1-bath in Highland Park almost sounds nice. Per the listing, the 1,280 sq. ft. place even sounds charming, as it has "new carpet, fresh paint and recent deck work...extra large, claw foot tub, clam shell sink." That is, until you hear the phrases "cash only" and "great opportunity" get thrown into the mix. Then, paired with a brief flip through the listing photos, one understands that this "investment opportunity" was written up by an adept English major, who while certainly does not espouse any untruths also employs a great deal of poetic license to make this rickety, tear-down sound like a gem. "Don't wait on this one", the listing concludes, because let's face it -- even for $95,000, this place is not worth waiting for.
