Reasonable Price and Easy Open Concept Modification Make this a Great Starter Home

Classic features of a 1960’s built ranch adorn this property. I was impressed by the hardwood floors and ceiling drywall finishes (I know, this sounds odd, but the swirl pattern used in finishing ceilings in the era of home is pretty cool….just hard to match when you patch!). The layout of this home is classic for the era of build; main entry living, galley kitchen behind with laundry, 1/2 bath, and garage at the end of the kitchen. A hallway separates the living from the sleeping space with 3 modest sized bedrooms sharing a full bath. 

The home makes sense, and with a little bit of easy modifications to the kitchen, this home would have a really great open living space that is desirable to many buyers, especially those looking to start a family. I bet this kitchen could be modified for around $30,000, and when done, would provide a great open living space. Pair that living space with a good location not too far from all the amenities of downtown and easy access to the Poudre River to the North and this home really has quite a bit to offer at the price. 
It was originally listed at $325K (which I thought was fair pricing), but came on right at the end of the summer which can be a difficult time to sell as renters resign leases, investors look to rent or fix what they have already purchased, and kids head back to school. This could be an awesome opportunity for a buyer to get into the market though and add a little sweat equity into a home and neighborhood that is up and coming! A price adjustment of $10K shows that the sellers are ready to make this deal happen and I don’t expect this one to last much longer on the market.
