    Description

    If you have been waiting...and hoping for just the right home to come on the market...now is your chance to snag a small, old home in Valley View for a friendly price - perfect if you will do the updating. This is one of those I want it kind of houses. It oozes curb appeal, has a multi-level backyard with retaining walls, perfect for entertaining and the real secret it has picturesque sunrise views. Has this happened to you? You look at many houses and finally come across one that seems to have all of the key features on your checklist. At the last minute, you pull back from writing the contract. You cant really put your finger on it, but you know something is missing. What is lacking in these situations is the most important ingredient of all an emotional connection to the house. Houses do have invisible qualities an energy and personality that you either sense or you do not...and this is one of those rare homes that rates very high on the charm meter. It is dripping with personality at every turn. If you have the fever for living the Valley View lifestyle, you have already discovered that many of the prices have sailed through the $300,000 range and up. So why is this home only $249,000? It still has its original charm and needs updating. The home has three bedrooms, two baths and just over 1,100 square feet above grade. If you can accept the homes age and condition, there are some underlying benefits here that may trigger multiple offers. Many houses that go on the market in this area get a quick redo that you have to pay for. Typically, this consists of a make-ready job in which the house gets a fast paint job, inexpensive carpet (that is always beige) along with new light fixtures and appliances from HomeDepot. Then the house goes on the market for over $325,000. The best candidate for this house is a person who does not want to pay for this only to have to tear it out and start over. Remember, the price here is only $249,000. Things really get interesting when you study this lot. For starters, notice how it sits on the top of the hill overlooking Valley View Park. Architecturally speaking, this is always the preferred location if you are going to put money into a genuine remodel project. But the biggie is the size of and position of the lot. The other surprising benefit is that last owner actually did some nice core work around the house. A couple of days ago the carpet was pulled up and we discovered hardwood floors-which would shine once fully refinished. You will notice some work in the kitchen like an updated stainless steel refrigerator. What this means is - with a more work by a new owner - you can live in the home now and do the updating on your timetable. Serious inquiries only please. This is not a casual asking price, and this is an AS-IS sale. The Estate will make no repairs. Given the hilltop site, and fabulous view, it is plausible that most of the asking price here is supported by the premium lot value alone. If you are a Ready-To-Act buyer, call your agent to schedule a private showing today! FHA 203K Renovation Financing, Conventional Financing, Cash Buyers, Investors, Builders, Developers are All Warmly Welcomed. Pre-Listing Home Inspection Report Available For Review.
