I would like an old house to fix up but not a major renovation. This house is listed as needing TLC...Is it minor or major? Also, how is the neighborhood? Safe, family friendly, schools, etc.?

Jamie,

"Needing TLC" can be a little misleading. What that may actually mean is, "Please come look at this property and ignore a few major defects." I used to scout houses for investors and I would see that phrase often. None of which ever only needed a little TLC.

The best way to see if a neighborhood is family friendly is to drive by it in during the evenings and on the weekends when families are likelier to be interacting. Once you are there, stop and talk to people in the area. They can give you an honest impression, since they live there.

Woodruff Place is a historic three Street neighborhood. Booth Tarkington used thes area as the back ground for Penrod. It has large older homes and is a close knite neighborhood. The espalades have fountains and statues. It is close to Arsenal Tech high school. This was once a arsenal location during the civil war. It is close to downtown. If it is the right neighborhood for you would be completely up to you. I would enjoy showing you this neighborhood and this home. If it isn't right for you I can help you find another historic area.

Woodruff Place is a very established community. As you probably know, there is no safe bet in investing. It would be in your best interest to consult a local Realtor and go through your plan, and see if this would be a good investment. I've not been in the house, so I cannot tell you if it is minor or major repairs that are needed. If I had been through the home, our definitions of major and minor may be different.
