We strolled through the listings and found the five most affordable homes in Redmond. You probably already have enough work to do so we skipped the homes that are fixers, sold as-is, or needing TLC.
A price cut of $24,000 is a nice place to start (unless you’re the seller.) That makes this one bedroom, two bathroom, 1,300 square foot house available for $395,000. Ten foot ceilings, red oak flooring, maple cabinets create a frame for a fairly modern home that was built in 2005. A two-sided fireplace is a nice touch. The hurdle for many buyers of this 3,049 square foot property is the age requirement, it is in a 55+ community.
The next step up is a big one, at least in price. This two bedroom, three bathroom townhome is able to add those extra rooms with only a slight increase in size, to 1,441 square feet, and by adding a second story. The price pops over a half a million, $539,990 for the unit built in 1998. No age restrictions, a fenced yard, and nature as a backyard neighbor are some of the other added benefits.
Here’s a Baby Boom special, a two story, three bedroom, one and three-quarter bathroom split level built in 1963. The exterior hasn’t changed much, nor has the layout, but the interior of the 2,350 square foot house looks much more modern. So does the price, $699,950. Well-tended gardens on the 8,263 square foot lot wrap around the house, with a walkway that leads to a studio. One sign of the sixties, a brick barbecue.
Same type of house, split-level; same price, $699,950; almost the same size, 2,330 square feet, but the details make this 1980 home different. Three bedrooms plus a full bath plus two three-quarter baths hit the basics. The cabinetry in the kitchen is repeated throughout the house. Outside, the 0.26 acre lot has a broad concrete pad plus an extensive deck. It’s also storm ready because it is wired for a generator.
A 2005 Craftsman is listed at $715,000. It sits on a 5,600 square foot property, includes a tech center with the two bedrooms and two bathrooms in the 1,870 square foot space, and uses a curved wall or two to soften the space. The intricate garden and patio space in the back may be your living space in the summer. Just like the first house in this list, it is in a 55+ community, a different version of being carded.
