Well, you could, but the wine cellar is a way more telling spot. First of all, an empty wine cellar usually means no one lives in the house except for a Castle Keeper. Ain’t no way a Castle Keeper is going to be drinking red wine. Secondly, when you move, you take the good wine with you and drink the rest secretly after dark. Third — and most vitally — who can afford wine when they are struggling to make a house payment?

Go ahead, put this one on your house checklist!

What a great home for $200K, give or take $20,000. Located in DeGoyler Elementary School, a Leave It To Beaver ‘hood near Royal and Marsh Lane. This home is a spacious 2359 square feet, has four bedrooms,  two baths, and is a splendid lay out for entertaining. Spacious kitchen with a ton of built-ins and nice breakfast bar. Not sure how I feel about all that red in there, but I guess you have a party, a guest spills red wine everywhere, you don’t ever notice it? (My advice: paint the kitchen.) Four bedrooms, two living areas, hardwood floors throughout because the home was built in 1956 when all homes had hardwoods. Pretty French doors lead to the back yard deck, pool & gazebo. Did I say a swimming pool for $229,500? I did. This is a great young family house in an area populated with young homeowners and parents. Listed with Coldwell Banker’s Frank De La Rosa for $229,500.
