This just drives me crazy. Here we have a nice house at 1506 Kessler Parkway in a great neighborhood, obviously last owned by an elderly couple. Asking is $450,000 though it’s on DCAD for $268,000 but then we know how behind DCAD is.
I’ll bet this home has had very few owners. Built in 1955, it sits on a huge .37 acre wooded lot with great trees. The home is a two bedroom, two bath 2310 square feet deal with a two car garage. It is very perplexing why there are only two bedrooms. There are three living areas, so maybe one of the bedrooms was converted to the sitting area off the master. Whatever. It’s been loved, but loved by someone who really liked Formica, linoleum and carpet on the added on sunroom. Oh and early American furniture.
So why I ask, why did this agent put up these crappy pictures in MLS? I mean, look at them.
Were they taken by a flip phone. Could they not have removed the cones for five seconds? Could they not have moved the roll of toilet paper just for the picture, or stick it under the sink? How about blow the leaves off the roof? Move the lawn chairs and create a cozy sitting area outside? Open the drapes, move the rolled up rug? Get some of the furniture out so you can see the bones. Yes, this is a house that needs work but I think it is a total diamond in the rough! It’s only $450,000… where would you start with this house? I’d get rid of the porch, unearth the hardwoods, gut the kitchen and baths, smooth the ceilings, paint the brick in the family room or leave it? What do we do with that paneling?
And get a load of that striped sofa. You need dark glasses to look at it.
OK, I am done griping about this house and the agent, Randy Wilson of Homes of North Texas. Are you? Go for it!
