Upgrades and Value in the Same Home – 2409 Edgecliff

Never judge a book by its cover. In this case, never judge the upgrades of a home by its price tag.

This is no ordinary home hiding behind the trees.

From any standpoint, 2409 Edgecliff is a value purchase for a first-time home buyer, investor, or homeowner wanting to move up or down. Priced at $160,000 and with 2,381 sf to work with ($67/sf), 2409 Edgecliff is the lowest priced home on the market in the Summer Crest (or Summercrest) neighborhood in Georgetown. Throw in all the upgrades that the home is secretly hiding on the inside, and you’re creating instant equity at closing. The owner spared no expense when it came to upgrading his primary residence. In total, he spent close to $40,000 in upgrades!

This patio feels like an extension of the home itself.

One of the more obvious upgrades is the ceramic tile flooring. This beautiful, natural tile isn’t like most tiles. Ceramic tiles are forged from rich, hearty clay and kiln-fired for strength, durability, beauty, and uniqueness. You’ll easily notice the ceramic tiles in the dining room, living room, and hallways. It continues when you walk out the back door to the expanded, covered rear patio, which give it a remarkably unique, one-of-a-kind look and feel. The covered patio is further protected with an aluminum awning sure to make your rainy nights more enjoyable as you sip your hot cup of tea to the calming sound of rain against a metal roof. The kitchen has been updated with granite counters, tile back splash, and new sink. Hard water is no longer an issue with a new water softener system. Your yards are huge, green, and lush thanks to a professional landscaping re-do in the front and back yards, including full, automatic sprinkler system. Foam insulation keeps the utility costs low and the temperatures comfortable. These are some of the major upgrades you won’t find in your neighbor’s home – not for this price anyway.

This type of back yard can only be attained by a professional.

And let’s not forget about the neighborhood. In the past 6 months in Summer Crest, 11 homes have sold with 1 home pending (2 homes/month). Currently there are only 2 homes for sale, which means Summer Crest is in high demand and 2409 Edgecliff will not last more than 30 days!

One thing to note: some buyers are looking for first floor bedrooms. In this home, all the bedrooms are on the second floor, including a master bedroom twice the size of others. This allows for more efficient use of space on the first floor, including a second dining area that can easily be used as a home office. Lastly, there is no separate shower from the tub in the master bathroom. If you’re okay with not wiping off dust from your seldom-used bath tub every week, then this is the right home for you!

Immaculate Wood Floors and Low Outdoor Maintenance – 14833 Irondale in Davis Spring

Davis Spring may be the best kept secret in N. Austin.

Set in the highly desirable neighborhood of Davis Spring, 14833 Irondale puts you closer to Austin than Avery Ranch! While everyone else is fighting over Avery Ranch real estate, the smart home buyer chooses Davis Spring over Avery Ranch for its affordability. At $241,000 for 2,366 sf (a shade under $102/sf), it has the same great access to shopping, highways, and exemplary schools (Sommer ES, Cedar Valley MS, McNeil HS) in Round Rock ISD, is priced lower, and has lower HOA fees per year. Compare this to the average sold price of $107/sf in Avery Ranch over the last 6 months and this is a deal!

This home has wood floors. When most sellers claim they have wood floors, only the study or living room has wood floors. When we say wood floors, we mean it! Over 80% of this home is laid in real plank wood floors – living room, dining room, bedrooms, hallways, office, you name it. The other 20% is covered in hard tile to easily repel water in the kitchen, breakfast area, and bathrooms. Now that’s smart upgrading.

Who needs a yard with a deck like this?

Tired of lawn maintenance cutting into your weekends? So was the seller, and that’s why he installed a 26′ x 9′ composite rear deck and covered patio in the back. There’s still enough room for a nice dog run on the side and small garden in the back, but nothing says peace and relaxation more than lounging on your deck chair in a t-shirt and shorts, enjoying the breeze and rustling tree leaves, and NOT doing yard work in the hot sun.

Not only is this home in a very exclusive market (10 sold in the last 6 months with 5 more currently under contract vs. 5 available), it’s one of the lowest priced. And with over $50,000 in upgrades in recent years (wood floors, rear patio and deck, 17 SEER air conditioning unit, 30-year roof), this is one of the best bargains available.  Ask your Realtor to show you this home today and if you don’t have one, call me!
