Credit goes to tipster-extraordinaire Eric Rojas for finding this bank-owned single-family in the heart of Roscoe Village. Like most bank-owned properties, the place is being sold "as-is," and it looks like it has served as a venue for some extracurricular activities since the previous owners vacated. We aren't experts on the subject, but that sure looks like gang graffiti in the basement. Three years ago, the 1,134-square-foot home sold for $480,000; yesterday, it came back on the market for $194,900. Older listings were candid: "Walls & ceiling in fair condition ... High Bsmt (2' Abv Ground Has 1 Finished Rm Otherwise not in good shape."
