After asking about these factors, the agent asked if I "had ever been to Oak Park?". Pause, awkward silence. I said yes. "Oh, the woodwork" she said along with some other things. Pause. Then she said that the group of children selling the home for the parents were now more realistic etc... Bingo.
Anyway, the house was pretty cool but a pretty big project too. Alas, it sits waiting for a buyer and my clients are under contract on another house. Here's a quick video I shot of the home. It's not the best video, but you do see some of that woodwork.
