The crash of the housing market and the great recession have been hard on our historic homes but some are being rehabbed liked this amazing home in the 4th street preservation district on the East side of St. Paul. Historic St. Paul is taking bids on a couple of homes that are in need of rehab. For more information see Vacant Housing Rehabilitation: NSP Bidding Opportunities
Houses like these need a lot of work but lets face it they don't build them like they used to and right now real estate is cheap and so are mortgage rates.
The home in the picture is at 696 E. 4th street in St. Paul. The neighborhood has a high foreclosure rate and is in a historic preservation district.
