Cruising through the listings found five of the most affordable—more accurately, the least expensive—listings in Broadview. For these prices, do they provide a broad view? Let’s take a look.
Back from the beginning of the Baby Boom is this 1948 brick rambler priced at $515,000. With two bedrooms and one bathroom, it was meant for families that hadn’t boomed yet. The 1,320 square feet inside have hardwood floors and updated appliances. The kitchen and laundry have been remodeled, but the fireplace retains the same skinny brick style from the exterior. The 6,969-square-foot lot has fruit trees and fences.
Remodeled this year, this 1953 rambler has a mix of brick and wood siding, as if caught in the style transition. It’s bigger, at 1,720 square feet, and holds three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The updates are obvious throughout, even in the attic rooms. Outside, a broad patio surveys a fenced backyard. The 6,534-square-foot lot is flat, open, and could be a green canvas for a landscaper’s artistry. Price? $690,000.
On the market for less than a month and they’ve already dropped the price $20,000 to $699,000. That’s a nice discount. Another brick home from the ‘50s, 1951, this one has four bedrooms and one and three-quarter bathrooms. It’s the biggest so far at 2,220 square feet with 8,703 square feet outside. The backyard is fenced and looks ready for kids and pets to play. Here’s the first mention of a view, a peek-a-boo.
A wood exterior? How uncommon, at least within this era. A 1952 midcentury is for sale at $798,800, a $96,200 price cut. Is this a trend?
The package includes four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,150 square feet inside. Outside, there’s a typical 6,534 square-foot lot, but with a very atypical latent in-ground swimming pool. The walls and floor are in place, but until it’s finished, it’s covered by a big patch of green.
One last home, this one bricked. It is from 1952 with a fun-for-some pink tile bathroom. The other bathroom and the four bedrooms are the core of the 2,490-square-foot space. Kitchen cabinets carry a patina, but the accent tiles look resilient. Will they survive a remodel? The $799,999 package includes a quarter acre lot covered in mature landscaping. Leave as-is and it’s one less thing to worry about.
