Brookside/Waldo Area Home For Sale

Many buyers me they want a house with ‘good bones’ — that is, a home with all the major expensive maintenance items completed.  It’s especially important to first time buyers who have to make every dollar count towards a down payment or closing costs.  They are often willing to remodel the inside of the home themselves.

This new listing has been very maintained by it’s current owner, who has recently replaced all of the pricey mechanical items:  the heating and air conditioning system and roof are newer; most all windows have been replaced; the electrical box was replaced and the foundation has been checked and braced.  It has a charming Tudor design, with stone and brick exterior, an enclosed side porch and a private driveway.

Inside, you’ll find a bedroom and full bath on the first floor, along with a spacious living room and dining room.  The kitchen has a gas stove and refrigerator–those appliances stay, along with the washer and dryer. Upstairs are two large bedrooms and another full bath.

This house does need some updating — you could spend a lot of money for a total rehab of the kitchen and baths or plan a more moderately priced project with some fresh paint, countertops and décor.  The location is very convenient–just off Holmes Road, on a bus route, within a mile or two of UMKC, the Plaza, Brookside/Waldo shops and restaurants.

This Brookside Home Needs a New Owner!

Despite the slow housing market, sales continue in Brookside.  Seems like everyone wants to live here…or at least consider it when looking for a new home.  During a recent open house, I had four couples from North Kansas City interested in moving to the area–four different couples in three hours!  That was unusual.

This home, at 441 W 58 Terrace, needs a new owner. It’s been on the market since spring, and is now reduced to $295,000.  This is a lot of house for the money, especially considering the location.  Why hasn’t it sold yet?  Many reasons, I believe–the initial price was high for many buyers, it needs a little polishing up here and there, the backyard isn’t large and it’s perhaps too much house for empty nesters.  The positives of this house are many: it’s on a great block (I used to live two homes down and know the neighbors!); it’s just a few blocks north of the Brookside shops and a few blocks south of Loose Park; it has four large bedrooms, three and a half baths, a two car garage and newer roof; it has hot water heat; a newer kitchen; a family room, cozy library and separate office space. There are many classic architectural details: a leaded glass window, original light fixtures, maid’s staircase, front porch, stucco and brick exterior.    The owners want to move closer to school for their children.  They are ready to entertain offers–so if you know of someone who is looking in the area–call (816 510 1262) or email me.  You can also visit my website for more photos.   

This home is such a great value and has so much to offer it’s next owners…help me get it sold!!
