Perhaps not a trophy- the picture tells part of the story. This sold for $332k less than two months ago and now it is bank owned. This price brings it to $295/sq.ft.

Zoned for multiple units and there is room for more behind house according to listing; but no size given for house or lot.

Any of these homes could be an investment property. Over the years they could pay well as rental properties. Even as prices reach new lows, rents are rising and may be expected to for many years to come as demand rises and new units become scarce.
