Skip the Dirty Work: House Ready For You to Rebuild Interior

Whether it's dirty carpeting, battered old cabinets, or an unnecessary wall--finally tearing out the old is one of the most satisfying parts of any renovation project. Do you disagree? Perfect! This six-bedroom project house in Indian Village is ideal. All the tear-out is complete; now it's just rough framing waiting for someone to paint over it with whatever design they see fit. This house was listed in 2011 for just $51K, yet the seller is now asking $125K (but is also "open to anything"). The ad claims a new roof and ductwork, but do those things plus a gutted interior warrant a $74K price increase?
