Description: It's hard to beat the price of this large colonial on 1.5 acres in the prosperous Philadelphia suburb of Marlton. It's nearly $50,000 less than the sale price eight years ago and $55,000 less than it was listed for earlier this year.

According to agent Ivan Kiyatkin, the neighborhood is safe and the schools good, which helps homes here mostly sell for $300,000-plus.

The house has a few issues, but it's not a total wreck. The pool needs to be relined and the septic system renewed. The kitchen and bath cry out for complete overhauls. And any buyer should bring along lots of paint to cover up some of the funky wall colors.
