Yesterday I decided to take a walk in our neighborhood. I was hoping to get some good pictures of the tree foilage but was disappointed that our trees haven't turned yet. Yet, I did notice there were quite a few homes in our housing addition for sale. Most of the homes in our neighborhood were built in the 80's except for one block over. Those homes were built in early 2000. Our neighborhood is mostly middle class geriatric homeowners. Not much traffic and relatively quiet. We love it. We are close to schools and one of the main throughfares in town that leads to shopping areas. Homes sell quickly in our neighborhood.
This home is two doors down and is for sale for $164,000. It has been updated throughout.
You could probably pick this one up for a steal. It has been on the market for almost two years. When it first went on the market it was listed for $150,000. I'm sure the seller would take any offer now.
This home is newer than most of the homes in the neighborhood and has an inground pool. Priced in the mid $160,000's.
We looked at this home five years ago when it was for sale and at that time it was listed for $174,000. It needed a lot of updating and would have taken a lot of work. It finally did sell and the owners did some updating and now they are reselling it. It sold within a week.
This home is listed for $150,000. The lady who lives here is a widow and wanting to move closer to her children in Texas. It probably needs some updating but one could always make an offer.
The home in the pictures above is not for sale. It has three bedrooms, two baths and an open kitchen/dinning/living area, utility room and two car garage. I hear the owners are building a screened-in porch with deck in the back. It also has a curved driveway in the front which is great for parking for guests. The owners are a nice retired couple who hope to stay here a long time, so I don't see it going up for sale anytime soon. (smiles)
