Silver and Bronze Homes – Sendero Springs

Silver
Silver homes have nice interior options or upgrades, and typically have good, natural floor plans.  For the average person or real estate agent, these can be easily mistaken for Gold homes.  However, in each Silver home, there is something that doesn’t measure up to a Gold home (i.e., priced too high; old wallpaper, paint or carpet; small closets, bedrooms, or bathrooms; etc.).  These differences become obvious if you were to compare directly to a Gold home.

(In alphabetical order…)

4335 Angelico Lane

Very solid 3 BR, 3 BA home with nice upgrades including a whole house audio system for $339,900.  The current owner is a network administrator so he made sure the home is hardwired with cat 5e in every room.  The home also has a deck that faces a greenbelt and walking trail, a media room upstairs, a dedicated office downstairs, and a walk-in shower in the master bathroom.  Not bad, but at $101/sf, I’d rather buy a brand new home.

4004 Arbol Cove

This 4 BR, 2 BA home is located on a cul de sac and backs to a greenbelt and walking trail for $254,900 ($88/sf).  The home includes granite counters, built-in wine rack, water softener, covered deck, shed, and a big yard.  Here’s what’s not to like: the office is not a private office, the master bathroom lacks a separate tub, the back yard slopes making it difficult to maintain, and the walk-in closet is at best a look-in closet.  These just don’t justify the asking price or $/sf.

4101 Risa Court

This 4 BR, 2 BA home is situated on a big corner lot very close to FM 1431 (University Blvd) and priced at $267,900.  The nice upgrade includes wood floors, but there are two different types of wood.  The kitchen has lots of cabinets, but a small pantry and the entire area is covered in wall paper.  So is the master bathroom.  Even without considering the time, money, and energy needed to make this on par, $99/sf is completely over priced.

5017 Sendero Springs

This 3 BR, 2 BA home is currently in the foreclosure state and is listed at $229,900.  The options include granite counters, stainless steel appliances, game room upstairs, and a big corner lot.  However, it has a detached garage, the formal dining room has carpet, and the home needs paint, carpet, and fence repair.  In this market, the bank would be very fortunate to get close to its $86/sf asking price.

Bronze
Bronze homes usually have a standard interior.  The floor plans, decor, and “upgrades” are very subject to personal taste (I’m saying this in the nicest way I know how).  There is usually at least one major flaw that will turn off the average buyer.  In most cases, the home is priced way above market, which might actually be a positive so the buyer doesn’t waste his or her time!

4303 Angelico Lane

A 3 BR, 2 BA home with very little privacy in the rear, no powder room for guests, a small master bedroom, and small pantry.  The kitchen needs to be updated and carpet needs to be replaced.  Compare it to Gold homes and you’ll realize this home is (over) priced at $219,900 at $102/sf!

3002 Asombra Lane

This big 5 BR, 3 BA home is priced at $274,900.  Although it has a media room, corian counters, and stainless steel appliances, it had a very odd floor plan.  The guest room is located smack dab in the middle of the room, the master bedroom is small, and I think there were fleas in the house!  Make sure you call pest control if you are considering this home.

3600 Luminoso

This 4 BR, 3 BA home is one of the few in Sendero Springs with an in-ground, heated pool.  The price isn’t bad at $424,900 ($100/sf).  It does contain a media room, game room, wet bar, office with wood floors, walk-in shower, granite counters, stainless steel appliances, and double oven, but the floor plan is odd.  It’s hard to tell where the center of the home is.  If you can live with that, the home is a good buy, but not a steal.

4106 Pasada Lane

This large 5 BR, 2 BA home contains a big master bedroom and closet, granite counters, and an office for $264,900 ($77/sf).  It just doesn’t have enough bathrooms!  The downstairs bedroom has no full bathroom, the home has an odd layout, and there’s a sport court in the back yard.  It takes up a large portion of the yard, is an eye sore, and really isn’t even that practical as a sport court!

4400 Pasada Lane

A 4 BR, 2 BA home that is quite plain listed at $239,000 ($96/sf).  The master bathroom is small, yet the closet is huge.  Granite counters just can’t make up the high $/sf here.

4419 Pasada Lane

A 4 BR, 2 BA home that contains a media and wet bar upstairs, big breakfast area, big living room with wood floors, and stainless steel appliances for $294,000 ($89/sf).  It has a small back yard that backs to the green belt.  The upstairs has a Jack and Jill bathroom that reminds me of a Manhattan condo (very narrow!).  If you are paying this much money, you should be able to get a lot more house for your dollar (and you can!).

Eagle Ridge – In the heart of hip Round Rock Shopping and world-class Medical facilities

North East Round Rock has developed into quite the trendy place. It’s one of those places you can go back to several times during the week and never get bored.

The Lifestyle

For example, sometimes my wife and I will take the kids to the Round Rock Premium Outlets and do some light shopping and let the frontkids blow off some energy. If it’s really hot outside, we might visit any number of large indoor stores in the Ikea shopping plaza like JC Penny or try out one of the many restaurants that keep popping up there every couple of months. It’s also a great place to meet up with other families. A couple of times, we’ve chatted the night away with friends as our kids would chase each other in the gated playscape in front of Mighty Fine Burgers.

The beauty of living in the Eagle Ridge neighborhood is that you have extremely convenient access to this type of lifestyle. This neighborhood isn’t just 2 miles from the Round Rock Outlets and Ikea shopping plaza, but also two great medical developments by Seton and Scott & White, as well as Texas State University.

The Home

backyardRecently, a large single-story home became available in Eagle Ridge on 3613 Eagles Nest. It’s the type of home that you can move right into, without having to worry about paint, landscaping and window treatments.  The home is just over 2100 SF and has 3 bedrooms with a study and formal dining room.  There are two things that you’ll really love about this home.  The first is the family-swallowing kitchen: When you first walk in, you’ll notice there is a large skylight that floods this room with plenty of natural light.  All great cooks know that adequate lighting is needed to prepare and cook meals optimally and there certainly won’t be any shortage of light in this kitchen! There are also stainless steel appliances from high-end manufacturers, like Kitchen Aid, that the owners have installed to update this kitchen.  The second is the well-landscaped, private backyard with covered patio: If you’ve ever bought a new home before, you know the anguish of planting skinny little trees and waiting for years before they are even large enough to provide shade for your 5 year old.  You probably have to live in the home for 5-7 years before your trees give you the privacy that you want to enjoy and then it’s time to move again.  Well, you won’t have that problem with this home.  Everything is mature and manicured, waiting for the next homeowner to enjoy.

The Finer Details
Here are more pictures of the home (you can click on to enlarge) and a video to guide you through this large 1-story home that is priced at just $175,000 in NE Round Rock.

3812 Juliannas Way – Close to the Round Rock Outlets

Juliannas WayHere’s a home that is in tip top condition:  Freshly painted inside and out, new carpet installed in February 2009 and many updated bathroom fixtures.

It’s rare to find a home where you can plunk down $140,000 and just move right in.  It’s even more rare to find one that is in such a great location.

How great is the location?  In less than 5 minutes of driving, you have access to IKEA, Round Rock Outlets, Scott and White Medical Center, Teravista Golf Course, Texas State University, Interstate 35 and a bunch of other stores that have just popped up near the Ikea Complex.

The home has 3 bedrooms and a large living area that opens up to the kitchen.  In addition to that, this home also has a bonus room/play room.  Not many homes in the 1500-1600 SF range can boast about 3 bedrooms AND a bonus room!  For more information and pictures see below:
