Hi there Mr Sutton,
This home is no longer available however I found another home that is less in price but needs A/C, kitchen cabinets (counter tops and sink are in garage), hot water heater and cabinets in one bathroom. Some flooring is needed also.

I have given you a link for looking at the $64K home. If you would like my assistance in helping you navigate through the short sale process, sending you daily listing changes, etc. I would be happy to help.

The house has been stripped. In the realtor only comments it says:
Cabinets in Kitchen and master bath were removed. No appliances. This property is sold AS IS w/right to inspect. (Owner is in the process of changing the latchkey)
If they took cabinets, you can be sure they took every light fixture and fan too.
It is under contract but I really doubt it will sell for that price -- bank will eventually ask for more.

As the others have told you this property went under contract on 11/18/12. The cabinets in the kitchen and bathrooms as well as the appliances have been taken. As mentioned by James Sommers, at the asking price it is most likely in need of extensive repairs.

That home is a short sale that went under contract on 11/18/2012. The cabinets in Kitchen and master bath were removed and there are no appliances. At that price I expect extensive repairs will be needed.

Doesn't say jack, but most likely minor drywall, flooring. Priced accordingly and not too far below market value so most likely nothing major. Let me know if I can help you further.

Hello Jack:

You would be better to inquire to the listing realtor in regards to the status of repairs, etc. Otherwise, if you are looking for comparable properties in SW Florida and you are not currently working with a realtor I would be happy to assist.

Give me a call.

Have a great holiday season.

Good afternoon Jack,

this is almost next door to me. The property is an approved short sale, unfortunately it is under contract. It has no appliances, most of the kitchen cabinets have been removed, most of the flooring needs to be replaced, and the interior needs repainting. You can track the progress of this one in the hope that it falls out or alternatively view cape Coral properties under 100k here… or search all southwest Florida homes at… Good luck and don't hesitate to ask any questions about southwest Florida living.
