re: #53 Racer X

Yeah I saw that. I have a friend who bought an old beat up house and spent about $60 grand to move it to a vacant lot. He now lives in a very nice home.

Any idea how much the rehab cost after the move?

The problem here in Central Austin is land cost. We had a lot down the block, two years ago (substandard residential at 50 X 110 feet), sell for over $325,000. Not a lot of opportunity for “affordable housing” when you have to invest that much in the dirt!
