I tend to use the term “blank slate” frequently, but in this case, nothing could be truer. This 3 bedroom, 1 bath home at 27024 Duffel Place in Hayward is begging for life. Its 1,214 square feet have already been gutted for you, so bring your vision, your tools, and make that sweat equity work for you. Listed at $474,900, that makes it $391/sf, which is a darn good price. The Zillow estimate is $683,758, which seems a tad bit high, given surrounding home values and the one recent comparable sale at 27072 Duffel going for $595,0000. But still, you could make a nice comfortable home for yourself, or play the flip, if you so desire.
On the market for 52 days, it is an “As Is” bank repo sale (last sold in 2005 for $560,000) and it does back up to the railroad tracks, which can be a problem for those of you who are light sleepers.
