This home has some real curb appeal to go along with a price tag below $100,000. The three-bedroom, one-bath house in west Toledo has classic charm but has been renovated for modern sensibilities. It was built in 1925 and features natural wood floors and molding, but it also has new replacement windows, an updated kitchen, plus a new full bath and rec room. In addition to those three bedrooms (which all have ceiling fans), the home also has a huge 15-by-6-foot walk-in closet. The property's bragging rights extend beyond the home itself. It also has a 2 1/2 car garage and a pool that was relined in 2012. The front of the home has a porch that's perfect for a swing.
