It's not sold, it's contingent, that's worse than pending, but it it's being sold as a foreclosure there is a different process than a regular sale.

That is incorrect. Townhouses, row houses, and semi-detached homes (called duplexes in some markets, twins in others) such as the topic of discussion here, are all single- family homes.

I live in a semi-detached home; I share a wall with a neighbor. My home is considered a single-family dwelling separate from the attached dwelling. I own the lot my house sits on; my neighbor owns his lot.

The most important thing about a kitchen, is the cook who's working in it. If the cook is updated, then even the oldest and most basic kitchen can be used to turn out gourmet masterpieces.

Who would likely produce the best photos, a ham-handed novice with a $40,000. Hasselblad, or a master photographer, with a $200., entry-level pocket camera?

It's dated but certainly functional. It's a cute house.

As a kid, I lived in Lake County, IL - also Winnetka, IL - but in South Florida, you'd have multiple offers on this home at this price!

We have a lot in South Florida that are considered townhomes but they are really condos. I was told years ago it was cheaper at one time for developers to build as condos.

Looks like it's under contract.....

If you google the address it says it was foreclosed in April and sold by the owners and the sherrif to a 3rd party. Is it normal for it to be listed for sale a month after that?

I understand what youíre saying. I live in an attached home and while we share walls (and fences), we do not share a roof.

However, in the home OP linked, there is no extended firewall or separation on the garage roof. That is what I was referring to in my post.

Outdated?

What do you mean?

Does it have electricity, indoor plumbing, heating, and telephone service? If so, it ain't outdated.

Says you. You don't get to make that determination for other people.

It can be outdated and have those items. Ever heard of knob and tube wiring? I wouldn't live in a house with it due to the fire hazard. Nor would I want oil heat or a party line for telephone. Fortunately, we each get to decide what we want in a home and what others think constitutes outdated or updated is moot.
