3316 Knight Street

3316 Knight Street

The first Tuesday of every month, realtors in Jacksonville’s neighborhoods of Avondale, Ortega and Riverside go look at LOTS of open houses — it’s called Neighborhood Caravan. I set out to pick a “favorite” from the caravan and write a blog about it, but after reviewing the list, I decided to write about two houses that have been on the market for a long time instead. Why? Because I think they are great deals!

The first house is at 3316 Knight Street. I suppose the reason it hasn’t sold is that it’s only got two bedrooms. But…it’s been nicely renovated with new roof, ac, appliances, kitchen, bathrooms and wood floors. It’s on a great low traffic street in Avondale, it’s got an open floorplan, two full bathrooms (which is a big plus in the Avondale bungalow market) and a very large backyard which would allow the addition of a third bedroom if one ever wanted to do that. It’s got 2br/2ba, 1568 SF and the lot is 60 x 120. Priced at $274,900, it’s at $175 per square foot. If you’re interested, please give me a call.

3914 Baltic Street

The second house is at 3914 Baltic Street in Ortega and I must say I’m surprised at why this house has not sold. I can’t say I’m a fan of the green interior paint colors the owner has selected but can this possibly be the reason people won’t buy it? It’s got a lot of space (1,900 sf), 3br’s and 2ba’s in the front part of the house and a large master suite with bath in the back part of the house. It’s got nice curb appeal and is in a great location. The lot is large at 100 x 125. Priced at only $278,900, it’s only $146┬áper square foot. Interested? Call me and we can go take a look.

Thanks for reading. Please join me for my next adventure in the Avondale, Ortega and Riverside real estate markets!
