Looking for a home? Try eBay!

If you have something to sell, eBay is the place to sell it. The online auction house has almost everything - including eight Youngstown homes which are on the market. Want a fixer-upper? Try this house on East Chalmers. It has vinyl siding! For only a few thousand bucks, you can own one of these lovely homes on Chalmers, Garland, Pearl, Ravewood, LaClede, and Saranac. They all need work and are located in neighborhoods which I would classify as blighted, but I didn't see one that couldn't be renovated and rented or sold as a single family home. The potential for the price is there. Seven of the eight are selling for the $11,000 or less. The eighth house is my favorite however. Not the house itself, but the ad: Almost Austintown! Youngstown West Bungalow. Almost in Austintown? I'm sorry to report that in this day and age, living in Youngstown is better than living in Austintown. Youngstown's renaissance is just beginning. Austintown is entering the Dark Ages. Plus, at $69,900, you could by a much nicer house in the North Heights neighborhood on the North Side.
