Today’s Home Tour –Brookside and Waldo

For today’s tour of open houses for Realtors, I concentrated ona couple of  homes that would be attractive to a first time buyer..we’ll start with those listings.  Time is running out to purchase and close prior to the deadline of November 30–so act now if you plan to buy!

200 E 43rd St

What a bargain!  This one bedroom, one bath condo near the KC Art Institute is move in ready for $109K.  HOA fees are just $156/month and include property insurance and water.  All appliances stay, including the washer/dryer; kitchen features granite countertops and stainless steel appliances.  It’s very charming with exposed brick and lots of light.  There is off street parking and a secured entrance.  For the price of  rent–you can own!


This Waldo home offers a lot of space for $185K. Three large bedrooms upstairs; living room, dining room, and a family room connected to the kitchen.  Two full baths and a one car garage. The basement has some built ins and could easily be  finished off for a rec room or office.  Bonus: a screened in porch AND a nice large deck in back!  Walk to the shops on Gregory or the Trolley Track Trail. This is a great location that will hold value.

Now for a couple of more expensive properties:

4350 Rockhill Rd        This condo was a nice surprise.  Located on Rockhill Road close to the Nelson Atkins Museum and the KC Art Institute, it is definitely a WOW when you walk in.   For $333,400 this 2cd floor unit has two bedrooms, two and a half baths, a large kitchen/hearth room, separate dining room, office / TV room and garage units in the back.  There are five buildings, and each building has just three condos–the space in each unit is at least 2100SF. The HOA fees are very reasonable at around $300/month.  I’ve seen a lot of condos and this one offers ALOT of space for the price, plus a central location.

6200 Oak

Finally this home at 6200 Oak is a 3 bedroom, 2 and a half bath house with a two car garage for $315,000.  There is an updated kitchen, office/TV room on first floor, a lovely shaded deck in back and larger bedrooms.  The second full bath is in the small, partially finished basement.  Oak is a busier street; however this home is close to the Brookside shops and is move in ready.  It sits on the corner so there is plenty of off-Oak street parking for guests.

Please note that the properties I am featuring today are not my listings, but they are available to be shown. If you would like more information on these homes or others, email me.  There is plenty for sale in the Brookside/Waldo area–and with the market at the bottom, coupled with low interest rates, this is the time to buy!
