Friends, I gotta tell ya: It's been a while since I've found a house at a decent price to show you.
Now. This is just a guess, but I think most of what I'm finding these days are houses for sale
where the owners are upside-down on their mortgages. The houses are in desireable neighborhoods, but the prices are still too high even for those great neighborhoods. Also, I'm finding houses that are extremely inexpensive foreclosures and need some serious help, so they're not exactly eye candy, if you know what I'm sayin'.
Oooo, but I've got a yummy little number for you today! I'm sure this one was a foreclosure, but now it's a sweet, delicious flip.
It's in the neighborhood in which we live, but near a beautiful, shady park in the most desireable section.
It was built in 1904, has 3 bedrooms and 1 1/2 baths and has a petite 1200 square feet of living space and a 2 car garage for $219,900.
Try not to judge this book by it's cover, because it's what on the inside that counts (life lesson #1):
The Foyer, its 5x11. Look through the door there....you can see the a bank of cabinets in the kitchen. It's the only shot of them:
The kitchen. It's 10x15. I might have set it up differently, but I love the finishes in here.
|Looking toward the dining room. I probably wouldn't have put the fridge there. It would be nice to have a cabinet and drawer there for silverware and some open shelving for dishes and glassware.|
|Looking in from the dining room.|
|Stove with a pot filler. They're proud of it. There's another shot of it that I'm not going to include. I love a pot filler as much as the next guy, but I think they make more sense in a commercial kitchen or say.....at the Duggar's house.|
|Looking back toward the foyer.|
The living room, it's 12x14:
A shot of the dining room, it's 12x12:
The main floor powder room:
There's also a laundry room on the main floor and a front porch.
The 2nd floor bathroom:
Upper floor den, it's 7x11:
There aren't any shots of any of the bedrooms, but let me tell you: they are tiny. They're 8x10, 10x10 and 16x10.
What do you think? Is the price too high, too low or just right?
