The Roman brick ranch at 815 Peavy Road is adorable. It’s a three-bedroom, two-bath home in Old Lake Highlands, feeds into Hexter Elementary, and is White Rock walkable. It also has a long, gated driveway and 10-foot privacy fence. It’s Pleasantville perfect and now is the perfect time to snatch it up – it is exceptionally priced at just $349,990.
The house, listed by Keller Williams Emerald Cities’ Greg Fowler, is a great example of what to do when staging a home and the Emerald Cities talked us through how they did it.
“815 Peavy offers the perfect opportunity,” Fowler said. “It’s a delightful mix of sleek and updated with casual and charming – modern amenities morphed with vintage vibes. Take for instance, the sublime kitchen redo and double-paned windows, paired with the home’s original details of the formal living and dining, detailed wall and trim finishes, and even a ‘telephone’ vestibule in the hallway. There are so many updates, and the owners perfectly blended them with the original charm of the 1950s architecture.”
And really showcasing the space can create big benefit at little cost. A lot of sellers list the way they live. They tend to keep furniture where they’ve had it because it’s always been there. What they don’t realize is if they place the couch over here or there, it can really open up the room. Rearranging furniture is one of the easiest ways to “update” and a simple shift can change the flow and make all the difference.
Emerald Cities Real Estate Group believes it’s key to think like a buyer. We all know a seller’s best ally is a neutral, open, spotless space. Some simple changes help potential buyers see themselves in your home. 815 Peavy is a great example of a showcase home just waiting to fulfill the life dreams of its next owner.
The proximity to White Rock Lake, parks, schools, restaurants, entertainment and shopping make this home the ideal location for an active east Dallas lifestyle. See it in person at the Open House this Saturday, June 14, and Sunday, June 15, from 2 to 4 p.m. or take a virtual tour here.
