Historic House Listings

Auction block time! Opening bid is $50,000 Circa 1930 in Virginia.

September 14, 2020

I’ve shared this house before when it was listed for sale. Back then it was listed at $179,900. It is now going on the auction block and the opening bid is set at $50,000. The fact that it didn’t sell at $179,900 tells me that someone could get a great deal on this house. This home was built in 1930. It is located on .43 acres in Emporia, Virginia. In love with the original bathrooms! There are original hardwood floors, built-ins and french doors. The auction is Wednesday, September 16th. Five bedrooms, four bathrooms, and 4,445 square feet. $50,000
