Tempting Buy in North London if You Like the Idea of a Pool

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Envelope Real Estate Brokerage Inc

If you have been looking for a home in the north part of London, you may be a little frustrated. The Northridge area may be one of the more traditional sections of town with older built homes, some dated but none of the cookie cutter homes on street upon street.22 Carmen Crescent London Ontario

   At last, here is a price show stopper of a fair sized home located at 22 Carmen Crescent, it has great bones (meaning well built), on a 67’ lot, and is a lot larger than it looks.

The Draw Backs!

     The drawback to a home that is 43 years old can be the lack of a master ensuite, 9’ ceilings, more than 2 bathrooms, a  finished basement(this one is partial), a massive kitchen, high tech flooring and lighting and a lush treed back yard. Also, some mild cosmetics will be required.  However, at $269,000 the owners have taken all this into consideration, appraisers and assessors have as well, there is a magnificent value here for all the Martha Stewarts and their honey do’s Honey, do this, honey do that, the dreaded do list!4 Bedroom House with Pool London Ontario

Here Is A Common Misstep

    The largest misstep I see young buyers make is that they either make themselves mortgage poor or buy a new home (because it is shiny, it gleams, its glossy) only to find out later that all the homes are the same, they are not as well built, trees take awhile to grow and it costs a fair amount of money to landscape a home. Oh and when it comes time to sell, that new neighbourhood resale prices , are not much more than what they paid for in the first place!


If you can accept the homes age, and condition, there are some underlying benefits that far outweigh the drawbacks. I won’t get into the fact that some of the best rated schools are in Northridge, or that the streets  have side- walks, trees, friendly front porches, road hockey, hide and seek, and get this, people actually smiling and saying hello!


In Summary

     Here is a large solid brick 4 bedroom home, 2 bathrooms, hardwood, laminate & carpeted floors, 5 appliances, a garage, a large eat in kitchen, a dining room, a colossal living room, a den with a wood burning fireplace, a 32’ x 16’ in-ground pool that is professionally maintained, new pump and motor, a fenced back yard and a one owner family who raised their family in a safe secure environment.

   What more can you ask for? You could pay upwards of $329,000 for a home with all these features. Get rid of your real estate frustration today, the numbers work!

That seems to be a rather unbeliveable price. I like London very much. Maybe I should move there!

Ty - there is something to be said for older more established communities ..... they have a sense of community that just is not there with the big fancy new ones that coast so much we often see them with empty rooms as the owners put so much into the house they have nothing left to put anything "into" the house

Your common misstep paragraph should be part of disclosures everywhere.  Very powerful.
