Who says the days of owning three bedrooms for under $300,000 in the city's hottest neighborhood are over? You just can't be picky when it comes to busted kitchen tiles and dated interiors and such. Wedged between Boulevard and Ponce City Market, this 1940 brick bungalow's owners are selling as-is and prefer cash. It's how much cash will be needed on the back end that's the pertinent question. Listed at this same price — $251,000 — in January, the home had a pending offer that seems to have fallen through. It's got 1,700 square feet as is, with a huge front porch and a hillside view of Ponce City Market. But is it worth the risk for, say, first-time homebuyers with time and a little cash to renovate? Like the proverb says: When cleaning products are captured in listing photos, choppy renovation waters doth likely lay ahead.
