On the surface, a 4-bedroom, 3 ½ bath home in Hinsdale for $224,993 seems like the deal of the year if it's in decent shape - and it is in decent shape, according to listing agent Mike McCurry of Coldwell Banker.
The classic 2-story 60s Colonial at 5500 South County Line Rd does come with a few wrinkles at that asking price. It's been on and off the market a number of times over the past several years at a wide range of price points - and must be purchased with an adjacent lot that carries an asking price of $99,000.
The property is a short sale. According to public records, the current owner paid nearly 3 times the current list price. McCurry reports that the property has already attracted several offers after coming back on the market several days ago.
Feeling lucky for the holiday? "Make any offer," says the listing description. Next year, you may be giving thanks for having done so.
