A lot of realtors absolutely hate For Sale By Owner properties, considering them an insult to our profession. But I really don’t mind. In today’s market, where prices are down and margins are slim, homeowners may need to at least try on their own. It just makes economic sense.
That’s why I’m happy to help promote a new listing from one of my readers. Built in 1952, this sweet little brick ranch sits on a big ol’ lot in a very private corner of Kirkwood. I’ve always drooled over this street (and the northern version on the other side of Marshall). Every house is different and interesting, with a gorgeous wooded yard, and you’ll even find some mid-century modern.
This particular home is pretty classic architecturally, but the real prize here is the property and the extensive updates inside. You’ll love the sleek kitchen & high-efficiency European fireplace, not to mention the lush landscaping, koi pond, fruit trees and chicken coop. The outdoor barbeque bar and raised garden beds are pretty fabulous too.
Homes don’t come up for sale in Signal Hill very often, and there aren’t many of them to begin with, so this is a great opportunity to buy in while you can. If you’re not hanging out with Dad today, swing by the open house from 1-4pm and see how lovely this place is for yourself!
1925 S. Signal Hills comes with 3 bedrooms, 1,950 square feet and more than an acre of land. The asking price is $330,000.
