Its been a while folks! I got so busy with the end of the summer, back to school thing that time just slipped away. I finally got smart and stopped buying everything on the the school supply list. Once I discovered I still had 12 duotangs (who came up with that name), boxes of #2 pencils, and 5 composition notebooks, it was time to stop! My youngest entered “middle school” and that was a big step. I”ve already had the dreaded back to school night for both the middle school and the high school. The good thing is I finally didn’t get stuck in one of those chairs form my kids desk. Elementary school was tough, when I stood up the chair came with me! I’m sure you can all relate…how embarrassing! Now on to real estate……..
We have been super busy. We got 2 new lsitings so far this month: 3757 Sheridan Ave which is a 3/2, 1930s home, very charming and adorable, cozy (realtor speak for not very big), cathedral ceiling, fireplace,and in move in condition. Asking $569,000.
Our other listing is 4422 Alton Rd. which is a great deal. Its a short sale but its got 4 bedrooms, over 3000 sq. ft, pool, renovated, but neglected! Asking $539,000. We already have 5 offers! Go team go!
And…..we have 2 wonderful homes under contract:
My other listing is located at 4422 Alton Road. Its a short sale but an excellent opportunity for someone. It has a new gourmet kitchen, pool, stone floors, 3 bedrooms upstairs and 1 down, formal dining, just an all around nice big family home. In all honesty, its been neglected and needs some TLC. Asking $539,000.
Speaking of short sales, I truly wish the banks could get it together with these short sales and foreclosures. I have put a few under contract but by the time the banks gets them approved the property has deteriorated so much, the buyers are backing away or asking for credits. The bank laughs at the whole credit thing so you go back to square one and write another offer (lower of course). The banks need to give a response in 30 days. I know they are swamped, well hire more people. The last time I checked there were a lot of people out of work….hello!
