This was a great house for the money. It’s in Lafayette, near Waneka Lake on a quiet cul de sac.
I say “was” because it’s under contract now. But this will give you an idea of what you can find, you just have to be ready to jump…. before somebody else jumps ahead of you.
The main living area is upstairs and it has this spacious and open feeling and it’s not a big house. The kitchen, dining area and living room are all open and bright. Best of all, there are sliding patio doors that open onto a deck that faces west and looks out onto the Continental Divide. It has new carpet, an updated kitchen, stainless appliances, new furnace, new roof. You could tell the previous owners loved the place and took really good care of everything. For instance, the upstairs bath was original, probably 20 years old, but it looked like new (old – new, if you know what I mean).
It was underpriced because the downstairs was half-finished. It was listed as a 2 Bed 1 Bath with 924 sq. ft. However, on the lower level, there was a roughed in bath and a large bedroom/family room that just needed carpet and some sheetrock in the ceiling. This could be done for around $5,000 to $8,000 depending on how fancy you got. The house was underpriced a good $30,000 due to that.
We love houses like this….good location, good lot, good floor plan and one minor flaw that is easily fixed that causes a reduced price. Unfortunately, our buyer didn’t want it so somebody else got it. Great deal for them!
