[Single Family] 2726 Pioneer Ave Brookline, 15226 For Sale

  • $75,750
  • 3 beds
  • 1 baths
  • 1,144 sqft

re-negotiated to FAR LESS THAN HALF of ARV to get it moved!! HUGE $money$-maker if you’ll tackle the settling!


-a few structural engineers assessed it; details below (*or bring your own, or tell your foundation friends!)
-the property will return massively to the right buyer that has the efficiencies to tackle these types of repairs
-very nice property otherwise in a superb location (+423 feet to Brookline Pre-K → 8 School!)

Owner-occupied for nearly 20 years; 3 BR brick SFR – on the busline, 2 blocks to Brookline Boulevard.

You can spare reading the rest & just see the #s pics below:
