$70,000 is all it takes to own almost three acres of land in Sand Springs and a fixer-upper of a house. But the best part of the deal might be the very unique storm shelter.
6 in the Morning reporter Omar Villafranca has this real estate listing.
â€œItâ€™s a fixer upper, a house for people who want a little country atmosphere." Fixer upper? More like a tear me downer! Bill Sharp says the house in Sand Springs has been on the market for about a week. The damaged walls and ratty carpet look like a Bob Villa project in the waiting. "Yeah, the kitchen is probably one of the better features of this house. We have a, what do you call this? Antiqued cabinets? Whitewashed? A whitewash quality here, yes."
As a realtor, Bill knows to point out the silver lining. But since I'm not looking to buy this fixer upper, Bill knows how regular people would react to this house. The house has central air conditioning, it's got propane heaters, it's got electricity and city water and it's even wired for cable.
But the best part is that it has a tornado shelter that the kids will love. In the backyard and big yellow storm shelter. Actually, itâ€™s an old Sand Springs school bus. But buyers beware, it's not certified. I'm pretty sure tornado shelters don't have windows blocked with refrigerators. And in this condition, I'm not sure any school wants it back.
If you were interested in the house, you're too late! Someone already bought the fixer upper. No plans on what they want to do with the house or the school bus.
