FEBRUARY POP QUIZ (Gainesville, FL)

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Real Estate Entrepreneur

 Does anybody know where this house is (in Gainesville), or wanna guess?

 
I needed to waste some time before meeting with a listing agent the other day and so I took a cruise around some neighborhoods. Some people like looking at birds, or plants, etc.. Well, I'm likely not alone in this group, but I definitely enjoy looking for cool properties just for fun. Have you seen this one?

Hey, I'll take a guess....it's gotta be a gated community on 241 or Millhopper Rd.  You gotta tell us where this one is.

I appreciate that you tried! You're not in the correct quadrant (NE,NW,SE,SW) though... and it's not gated.  It's on a small dead-end road with about 5 or 6 other houses. I haven't decided how long i'm going to leave this open for guessing. Eventually, I'll add a mapquest link for the answer, if I don't forget where it is myself : )

Second guess - somewhere on the Prairie (Thousand Oaks area or Kanapaha)?  You have me stumped.

Could be Pradera, but doesn't quite look like the right style... *sigh*

I swear I saw something similar to this on the left -hand side of the road, traveling east on 8th Ave (heading towards Tower Rd.).

Angela - you were very near! I can't remember if it was off of 8th. Are you sure you were going east towards Tower Rd? Now I have to check the address again!

Yes!  If I recall correctly, it was set back pretty deep in the woods on the left-hand side of the road as you're going east on 8th towards Tower Rd (with 91st ave to your back/west).  I think the only reason I could see it was because the trees had lost some of their foliage.  I could only see a glimpse of it, and it sat at an angle (it did not face 8th directly).  I believe it faced a more westerly direction, but I only caught a glimpse of it, so I'm not sure!

I should take my camera and try to hunt it down when I leave the office today hehe.

I was right!  I was coming back from a listing appointment and chose to take 8th back to my office.  I passed the house and, after turning right on to 91st, turned around because I realized I had my camera!

Street house is off of


Hint for my "Pop Quiz": The sign I posted is in this general vicinity of town... ;)

 Angela - Hurray! You were right!! I love that you had your camera too. YOU WIN! There's something strangely cool about this game - when 'virtual' interaction/conversation meets reality...

I love your pop quiz idea.  I think it's a great way to get consumers to participate in something fun and challenging...on the internet.  I think it's something we should continue to do in monthly installments at least and perhaps it will catch on to where people look forward to "this month's pop quiz"!
