3BR/2BA Bungalows in Historic Avondale are in HIGH demand!

I’ve got a buyer looking for a 3 bedroom / 2 bath bungalow in the Avondale neighborhood of Jacksonville, FL priced under $275,000. In case you didn’t know, this is a HOT price point in the market right now and the inventory of homes like this is in VERY short supply. There are only 12 currently listed and many of those are in poor repair or not in a great location.

The second bathroom and/or the third bedroom is what makes the difference. There are plenty three bedroom, 1 bathroom bungalows on the market and a few 2BR/2BA homes but a 3BR/2BA home is highly sought after home right now and, particularly if it’s in good shape, you can command top dollar.

Please call if you’re interested in selling – I can deliver a pre-qualified buyer right to your front door!

It’s rare when you find both a piece of history and a totally turn key renovated home. 3644 Richmond Street in Historic Avondale offers just that. Start with an estate sized lot with over 150 feet of riverfront, add a totally renovated 1926 Marsh and Saxelbye home with shimmering riverfront pool and separate guest house, and you’ve got a one of a kind property located within minutes of downtown Jacksonville.

Purchased in the summer of 2009, the owners lived in the house for a year to get a feel for what they wanted to do. Then, they moved out and a total renovation began. C.F. Knight, Inc. a custom home builder and remodeler was chosen for the job and the work took nearly a year to complete. The property was renovated from stem to stern and included a new redesigned custom kitchen, all new windows, all new baths, new dock, boat house, boat lift and more! Take a peek at the video for 3644 Richmond Street, Jacksonville, FL 32205 and enjoy!

Recipe for Success in Selling Your Home

Categories: Avondale, Sellers
Posted on October 5th, 2013

The Powell Steilberg team specializes in the Avondale, Ortega and Riverside neighborhoods of Jacksonville, FL. The two most important ingredients in the recipe for success in selling your home are correct price and professional photography.

We’ve sold over 100 homes in the area and have been inside many of the others so we’re uniquely qualified to give you an accurate opinion of value. We know right away how your home compares to the active competition and those recently sold.

After determining value, we hire a professional photographer to capture the essence of the home. The saying that a picture is worth a thousand words cannot be more true and it’s also true that no amount of marketing will sell an overpriced home.

Don’t risk having buyers reject your home online before even walking through the door – hire an expert who knows the market AND how to market your home!
