This Poland Avenue Home Is About To Hit The Auction Block

New, 4 comments

Here's one way to ensure your house won't sit on the market, just put it on the auction block like this Poland Avenue home. The auction details say the three-bedroom, two-bath home is in "the hipster Bywater district" but those who care about neighborhood specifics should know it's on the other side of St. Claude Avenue where Bywater's perimeter zig-zags. There's no mention of square footage for the 1930s-built home and perhaps the wonky wide angle shots were meant to portray a sense of roominess, but they're certainly not doing this place any favors. Also perplexing is the doorless archway from the bedroom that leads straight into the open bathroom (saloon-style doors, anyone?). Oddness aside, a recent remodel took place here and there's a new roof, plumbing, and electric. Included with the house are the stainless steel kitchen appliances, washer/dryer, "chandeliers," and ceiling fans (gee, thanks!). Online bidding kicks off May 1 and there's a live auction May 10 where the home will go to the highest bidder, online or live. There's no mention of a starting bid so this will be an interesting one to watch. The last time the house sold was in 2003 for $42,000. Readers, do weigh in. What do you think this place will sell for?
