Our office is crackling with activity — it seems as if after the long dull winter that people are waking up, brushing the dust off their shoulders and saying, Hey – maybe I better get out there and start looking for a house!

1520 Avondale Avenue

Two houses have gone under contract this week that are worth mentioning. The first is at 1520 Avondale Avenue. It was priced just over $500K. It’s a 3BR/3BA house with about 2,700 SF of living space, a 2 Car Garage and tiny little pool. The kitchen had been updated with granite and stainless appliances and there’s a lovely little bricked patio area out back. I called the listing agent of this house to see if the sellers will be staying in the neighborhood but sadly, they are not.

The other house to go under contract is a short sale located at 3029 Riverside Avenue. It’s asking price was $450K.  Because it’s a short sale, this could take a while to close so it’s listed as Active Contingent. The house was purchased for over $600K back in 2006. It’s got nearly 4,000 SF of living space, 3BR and 4BA’s. There is no garage. It’s got a gorgeous new kitchen and beautiful hardwood floors. It was actually under contract to someone else first but the deal fell apart and the current buyers swooped in.

I’ll keep watching to see what these two houses close for and how I think these sales will impact values in the neighborhood.
