Tempting Buy In Canterbury Riding For a Friendly Price. Perfect If You'll Do The Updating. Light filled design has three bedrooms and about 1,700 SQFT. If you have been searching for a home in Howard County, you may be a little frustrated. This area of Laurel may be the most charming section of town, but some of the homes are old and dated. At last, here is a show stopper of a floor plan. The address is 9560 Canterbury Riding, Laurel, MD 20723. If you have the fever for getting into Canterbury Riding, you have already discovered that many of the prices have sailed through the $225,000 range and up. So why is this home only $200,000? It still has its original charm and needs updating. If you can accept the homes age and condition, there are some underlying benefits here that may trigger multiple offers. Many houses that go on the market in this area get a quick redo that you have to pay for. Typically, this consists of a make ready job in which the house gets a fast paint job, inexpensive carpet that is always beige along with new light fixtures and appliances from Home Depot. Then the house goes on the market for over $230,000. The best candidate for this house is a person who does not want to pay for this only to have to tear it out and start over. Remember, the price here is only $200,000. The other surprising benefit is that last owner has actually done some nice core work around the house. You will love the hardwood floors throughout which would shine once fully refinished. You will notice some work in the kitchen like updated appliances. What this means is with little a more work by a new owner you can live in the home now and do the updating on your timetable. Serious inquiries only please. This is not a casual asking price, and this is an AS IS sale. The seller will make no repairs. Given the location, and fabulous price supported by the pre-listing home inspection and appraisal, this home won't last long. If you are a Ready To Act buyer, call your agent and come to the open house Sunday September 27th 12p-4p.
