Do you obsess over houses too?

I've made mention of it many times previously, but I have a low-key preoccupation with houses. I'm that guy who's closed on houses, and before the end of the day is back online looking at more houses. I've often joked I should be a realtor because I love houses so much.

And like most Mainers, I also love a good deal. While I may not drive all over town looking for the cheapest gas, I do love to shop around for the best price on anything I buy. Rarely do I buy anything impulsively. It usually always involves a lot of planning and research. Especially when I look at a house.

There's actually a house on the market, listed at $10k right now.

27 Phillips Street in Phillips, Maine is listed right now by Michael Carey from Tap Realty Solutions. I had to look immediately, because the asking price in the listing was a mere $10,000. That seems crazy by itself, but the inside is actually pretty awesome. There's cool built-ins, amazing wallpaper (that needs to come down, obviously), and other attributes that make you wonder about the $10k price.

Then I noticed that house is actually slated for auction, October 12-19. So it's quite likely this place will go for way more than $10,000. But still... it's enough to get your heart racing a little bit, thinking you'd hit the real estate motherload. It's got 4 bedrooms, but sadly, only 1 bathroom.

It does need a fair amount of work to get it all up to shape, but someone has already begun a good portion of it. It just needs you to come in and finish the job. Is that you?

Let's look at the photos of this crazy cool spot.

The iconic (and at times silly) toys, technologies, and electronics have been usurped since their grand entrance, either by advances in technology or breakthroughs in common sense. See how many things on this list trigger childhood memories—and which ones were here and gone so fast you missed them entirely.
