Curtis told onlookers that she had investors who would have helped her save the house- - - SOOOOO why didn't she talk to the owners about a sale or at least point the owners to those who would pay for stuff inside.

Would it have killed the Trib. to at least include a picture of the house?

Nicole, love your show and take Mpls/St.Paul houses from despair to beautiful once again. What is the owner going to replace the house with on Park Avenue? Nicole is such an asset to our cities. The $1 house persevered the house and added value to the neighborhood.

Recently she bought a house in the area for $1. The place was in rough shape. They totally remodeled it, inside and out. Now is a beautiful house with a landscaped yard. She does good quality work!

It would be interesting to hear the owners side of this. Was this woman's group willing to pay more than developers were offering? Had a deal with developers already been struck? But, really, none of that even matters because, you know, ownership of the property and all...

Not every house for rehab is a good choice, think about it take your win's and your louse's in stride and move on to the next venue.

The owner of the property is listed as Robert M Anderson, presumably the same guy mentioned in these two articles. http://www.startribune.com/local/minneapolis/204957181.html?refer=y http://www.startribune.com/local/minneapolis/122780224.html?refer=y
