VIDEO: ‘Fixer-upper' offered at $1 million in Los Angeles


LOS ANGELES (KRON) -- A newly listed home in the Los Angeles area is stirring quite the commotion.

The home that needs a lot of TLC was listed for $1 million.

"We priced it to be competitive, so we think it's going to sell for more than what we listed it at," realtor Amy Pace said.

Pace just listed a total fixer-upper: four-bed, three-bath hilltop craftsman in Highland Park and calls are coming in.

"The people that are coming here want the charm of a craftsman or character and this (is) exactly what everybody's looking for," Pace said.

And looking out is what Amy hopes potential buyers will fall in love with along with the built-ins.

The original blueprints are still here, where President Barrack Obama spent some time long after the original owners broke ground.

When the house was built more than 100 years ago, it cost a little more than $3,000 to build.

Forward to today: the asking price is more than 300 times that amount.

Walking through the two-story home, you can see the past everywhere.

But can you look past what needs to be done in the future?

Amy can, she says, and she's banking on a cash buyer will too.
