A cruise through the listings produced this list of the five relatively affordable homes in Kent. Some work may be required. But, isn’t that always the case?
Okay, so it probably is a project of a 1929 house, but at a price of $210,000 you get a blank canvas, or at least an opportunity to get creative that the neighbors may appreciate. You may have to bring your own financing for this two bedroom, one bathroom, 960 square foot house, though. There’s value in the location of the 6,534 square foot lot. Easy, flat access to the highway and Kent Station make commuting easier.
At nearly the same price, $219,000, you can find a two bedroom, three-quarter bathroom (to be added by seller), 910 square foot house from 1937 that’s also close to transit options. It has the added feature of a being a home or a business, just in case you want to make the ultimately short commute of housing your business at home. The property includes a flat and fenced 3,049 square foot lot. Time for a garden?
If you want something over a thousand square feet there’s this three bedroom, two bathroom ranch home with 1,460 square feet. For $269,000 you also get a fenced 7,000 square foot lot close to transit. A fireplace and wood stove can provide ambiance, but in this case they may also be providing heat. Evidently, the 1967 home needs a new furnace and hot water tank. Is replacing major appliances in your comfort zone?
An extra nine hundred dollars meets the price of this 1960 brick rambler, $269,900. Inside are three bedrooms and one bathroom and 1,220 square feet of living space. A jetted tub in one of the upgrades. Outside, check out a curvy custom concrete patio that covers much of the backyard of the 8,613 square foot property. There was also room for a 200 square foot outbuilding, handy for a shop or a retreat.
Remodels happen, which is why this three bedroom, one bathroom rambler looks more like 2010 that its original 1967. All of that fits in 1,090 square feet. Kitchen appliances, cabinets in the kitchen and bathroom, and a living room fireplace all look new-ish. Outside on the quarter acre lot is extensive landscaping that wraps around a patio and walkways. The price for the package that sits on the hill near Lake Meridian, $289,000, still under three hundred thousand dollars.
