Whats with the house on Jefferson just South of the VFW? Looks like it developed cracks all over the exterior (which looks like adobe or something) and they patched it?

Or... please tell me its not supposed to look like that.

I was looking at houses a couple of years ago, and walked through this place. It was a huge house but had significant structural issues. The foundation on this place was crumbling in the basement, the floors were all warped. Shortly after I walked through it. The listing was removed from the market.

I'm not sure if it was sold or the owner decided not to sell. If someone was going to live there they would have to dump a substatial amount of money into that place. I would imagine that it wouldn't even pass a C of O inspection.

If it's the house I'm thinking of on the corner of Poplar Beach and Jefferson, it was foreclosed upon in early 2010 and purchased for $89k in mid 2011.

I haven't driven by there recently, but likely what happened was cracks were patched after foundation work was done and those patches must fully cure (when done properly) before being painted over.

Yeah, that's the one. Green (I think) with white/light beige patches. The patches have been there for a long time though... seems like at least a year. Couldn't believe it was cracked and they didnt bother painting, but I guess that's the deal.
