Privacy Plus and Low-Maintenance Living in Painesville, Ohio... $84,900

Real Estate Agent with Serving Mentor, and all of Lake County, Ohio

This really great home in Painesville is one that I am so excited about.  I am marketing it for the sellers, who are, of course, also very excited.

It's really sharp... kind of cape-cod'ish looking from the outside.... with lots of city charm !  It's three years old, and although it is a single, detached home, it is technically termed a "ranch condo."  Don't you just LOVE that three-sided bay window in the front?

It has an over-sized garage... the builder called it a two-and-one-half car garage... but where you'll get another half-car to put in there... I don't know.  So... I am guessing it would be perfect for a whole bunch of storage.

Having a home in such a nice quiet area, and being on a cul-de-sac... and all those trees... means lots and lots of privacy.  There are lots of trees all around the neighborhood.  Full sidewalks, of course, and all front-entry garages.

Although there are many really cool features in this home, the kitchen is one of my favorites.  Just oodles of cabinets, a really great gas range, hard-surface counter tops, and a range vent-a-hood.  All the appliances remain.

The laundry room is spacious, and included a full-sized washer and dryer, and extra cabinets for even more storage.  The landscaping is beautiful, and the maintenance fee of $115 per month is considered low.  It has central air, of course, and a nice private rear patio that overlooks a wooded area.

For your very own personal tour... please give Carolyn Kolba a call at my direct number... 440-567-7211.  I think you will be very pleased at how much low-maintenance home you can get for such a teeny price.

Carolyn, that is an incredible price for what appears to be a great property.  Just twice as much as a car!  That one shouldn't be on the market very long, especially with very cooperative sellers.

Don, yes, it is incredible.  Financing has been almost impossible to get for these homes in this neighborhood, and that fact is surely reflected in the current price.

Diane, yes... it IS incredible.  As I said to Don, much of the pricing is due to the lack of available financing.  Hopefully we can get a buyer for whom that will not be a concern.

And, to all of you, Don, Michelle and Diane.  Thanks so much for coming over to comment.  My poor little post has been here... all by its little ol' self... alone and "comment'less."

It just occurred to me that I thought I recognized all three of your names... so I looked at the comments I have made recently, and YES... I commented on a post written by each of you.  How cool is that ?

I see that the Active Rain principle of "reciprocity" really does work.  I think I will write a post about this... and mention each of you in it.  Again, thank you all so much.

Hi, Carolyn! What a cute condo ranch! I especially love the three-sided bay window. With your enthusiastic description, it should sell fast. :)

Hi Carolyn -- Wow, a 3-year old home for under 90K -- people on the coasts just marvel at our prices here in Greater Cleveland and the Midwest.  At this price, with interest rates this low, buying this home is probably cheaper than renting and orders of magnitude nicer.
