SoPhilly Spotlight: Are they crazy edition

This gem for sale at 1322 Tasker Street, Philadelphia PA 19148 represents all that is glorious about tacky, old South Philly – gaudy light fixtures, wood paneling, ’60s bachelor pad basement. But the fact that these loons think they can get $569,900 for this place, which would need to be totally gutted, means they must be crazy. Anyone willing to cough up more than half a million dollars for a South Philly house would gag at the decor.

The statue outside hints at the questionable choices inside

Of course, the 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath house does have pluses: 1,649 square feet, central air, possibilty to convert yard to parking, great location next to leafy Juniper Street, half a block from the subway.

Whoa! Like a kick in the gut
Just imagine it without all that crap in there
The window bench is a nice touch
More of the requisite mirrors
Passable kitchen
The Easter bunny got sick in here
Cramped and wooden
It’s like a VFW in the basement, but I kind of like it
So what do you think? Is the space enough to make up for the months of renovation this would take? Let us know in the comments what you think this place would fetch.

    I spoke to the owners of this house a while back and they were pulling it off the market. Also, picked this up ages ago. No need to kick a guy when they are already down.

    Well, we missed the curbed item but apparently the owners didn’t take it off the market after all. No rib-kicking intended, but don’t you think that price is outrageous?

    I absolutely think it is an absurd asking price. There is nothing even close to that price in that neighborhood. And even if there were a property for over half a million dollars – it better be close to perfect, which this property is not. That is why, however, I think the realtor is doing a major disservice to his clients. He/she needs to either properly stage the property or give the owners a reality check.
