Every so often we like to take a look around and see what this crazy housing market actually has to offer. Specifically, we look at what might be available in an affordable range to see if affordable can still mean livable. Turns out, there's still a few gems out there on the lower end, if you're willing to look. Here's four homes asking under $350K that are worth checking out. Don't check too long, however, as most properties in this range go pending pretty quickly.
In Highland Park, this 2-BR, 1-bath just dropped its price enough to qualify at $349K. The 750 square-foot charmer has a tidy front lawn and fences on all sides. Inside, an open layout, lots of windows and gleaning wood floors make things bright. The kitchen looks remodeled and updated as well. Out back, a large fenced-in backyard that has tons of potential.
North Seattle has options too, like this 3-BR at 2313 N 130th Street in Haller Lake asking $319K. This midcentury home was built in 1951 and while it certainly has the vintage feel, it also seems to be in good shape. The bones have held up. Big backyard that has tons of potential and the whole place sits on a 7,400 square-foot lot. For those who want to buy in at a good price and then put in the work on updating, this could be a good start.
Over on 5211 Delridge Way SW in North Delridge there's this cute two-bedroom that's available for $247K. They get two bedrooms into the 910 square-foot space, though the ceilings make it a bit snug up top. Downstairs, nice hardwoods connect the entrance to the living room where a gas fireplace heats things up. Out the front door there's planter boxes and a landscaped yard ready to be updated.
Of course there's the tiny green Cape Cod home at 8411 Renton Avenue that caught our eye enough to write up a whole post on. Asking $285K, the interior was remodeled, which may be when the floors were brought back to something closer to new. Each of the rooms are decorated well with a variety of paint schemes and draperies. The red bathroom will help you wake up, or startle you the morning after a good party. Tiny houses fill space efficiently, which in this case puts the laundry in the kitchen.
