Light is a central theme this week with several of our picks having double height spaces and skylights. Double height spaces work great with narrow rooms as the light draws your eye up and out.

This week we have four fixers and one time capsule home for you. Houses sold 'as is' require a lot of dedication and money to bring them up to standard due to deferred maintenance but they are also often the most original since they retain features, finishes and that character you just can't fake. Fixers require vision and the ability to look past water stains, grime and neglect and see the potential diamond in the rough. In areas of greater land value, properties like these are often marketed for their land value and the...

This week, it's mid-century modern on a budget. All of our featured homes are listed at prices under $300k. Many include acreage and are truly untouched, time capsule homes. It's so nice to see homes that have been lived in and enjoyed before being ruined by insensitive flippers. We hope that by bringing attention to homes like these buyers, realtors, developers and even flippers will recognize the value of their original state.
