|Beautiful single home for $42,000
I lived in Tamaqua PA for 55 years. We raised the kids there - Lulu and I taught school there for 30 years. Every chance we got - we would hop into the car - bus - or camper - and head to Florida for vacations. Even short 5 day weekends - Thanksgiving - Christmas - Presidents Day - Easter - were often were spent after a 15 hour drive down I-95 - usually to Orlando and Disney World. In 1980 - we spent a year in Orlando where Lulu earned her Masters. In 1988 - it was another year in Tallahassee where she was awarded her Doctorate.
Lulu's sister lived in this New England Valley home. Her mother and younger brother lived nearby. 15 years ago - Lori was raising her small family in this beautiful small home. When she moved she sold the home. The buyer must have gotten in over his head - because he abandoned it a few years ago. The house sat fallow. Now the bank has placed a price tag on it of $42,000 - free and clear. The house has really nice bones - but it needs - plumbing and heat. I toured the home and the roof seems to be pretty good.
