Granted, this two-bedroom, one-bath in Mid-City may not immediately bowl you over with its curb appeal. However, behind that humdrum exterior, the Spanish-style house looks to have charm and character to spare. Built in 1935, the 1,530 square foot residence features hardwood floors, beamed ceilings, a fireplace, lovely vintage tile, a formal dining room, a bonus office space, an updated electrical system, copper plumbing, and drought tolerant landscaping. Last sold in 2007 for $499,000, it's now listed as a short sale at $290,000.
