You might pass by this typical Elmwood Village Victorian without taking much note. It is the kind of subtly elegant house that can easily be taken for granted in Buffalo. If you are in the market for a new house it might be time for you to take a closer look quickly. It was just listed for $398,000 and likely won’t last long on the market . It has just about everything you would want in your city house, including a 2 car garage (although you sacrifice most of the back yard for that perk). It is listed as a double but has the kind of high level of finishes that would suit any live-in owner and likely commands high rent for the second apartment. Your tenant will pay most of your mortgage! It is loaded with immaculate wood paneling, floors, trim, and fire places. Here is the realtor’s pitch:
