The new year has just begun but this newly listed Highland Park home on Hub Street looks like it has been painted with Easter in mind, with a combination of bright-blue siding, yellow window frames and gray trim (pink probably would have been a bit much). The blue and yellow color scheme on the 1920 bungalow is a break with the sage green or putty colors favored by most Northeast house flippers. The colors might be different but the investors who purchased the thee-bedroom house are following a tried-and-true flipper formula by seeking a steep mark up in a relatively short period of time. After being sold for $260,000 last August, the approximately 1,200-square-foot home is now up for sale at $489,500, according to Redfin.
