    My son and I looked at a 90 year old house (for him). Price was $79k, it's a 3 bedroom, 1 bath home on 1/2 acre. It has new windows and new doors, new roof, and furnace is only 8 years old (oil forced air). It had the electrical upgraded to 100 amp breaker box more recently too. It will need...
