Review of Olney Real Estate for Sale
Yesterday I previewed some homes for sale in Olney,MD that are priced pretty well and are great opportunities to enjoy home ownership. If there specific homes you would like me to preview,let me know!
1. 18550 Clovercrest Circle in "James Creek" 3 bedrooms,2 full baths, 2 half baths
---Home is an end unit.
Exterior: The back yard intersects a forest in the back...there is no fence on back of yard to seperate your property from public land/other property. There is a small fence on the side.
There is room for a patio and you could probably add a deck off of the living room french doors. Currently the doors open to the outside but other than getting air you can't go outside.
When you walk in there is a half bath immediately to your left. You go upstairs and to your immediate right is the kitchen which has room probably for a table of 4 or if you wanted to add an island/another prepping area in the kitchen. Beyond the kitchen is a living room/dining room area. There is a fireplace in the corner of the room.
Upstairs bedrooms are average size. The master bedroom has a private full bath. Downstairs is a walkout basement and you enter the garage through the basement. You probably will have to put some money into the basement...I would have it checked for water damage/mold.
The home is priced well,I think, at $314900. Also have the hoa/condo fee. I talked to a for sale by owner down the street who is asking $425k. I didn't go inside. Maybe it is all granite all over the house,or everyhing top of the line.
2. 18704 Tanterra WAy "Brookville Knolls" 4 bedrooms,2.5 baths detached home on .25 acres of land. Flat land. Fenced yard in back. Garage + offstreet parking. Home is a contemporary.
Kitchen has lots of counter space. Nice view of front yard from kitchen. There is a seperate dining room area. Nice family room addition off kitchen with skylights. Private master bedroom. Seller is offering a home warranty (usually cover appliances).
So,I understand the home is asking higher than maybe you want to be at $365k. The questions are from a buyer standpoint,the benefits of a home with/ or without a condo fee/hoa fee--these fees are forever. Consider short term and long term costs and if it works. Single family home is also detached. Both homes have a garage. I wonder how much less the sellers would take since the kitchen does need to be updated...in good condition,but old.
3. 18519 Bowie Mill Rd. 4 bdrm,3 full bath. Large flat yard. Fenced yard. 1 car garage+ driveway space. NEw a/c 8/09 1st floor master bedroom with lare walk-in closet and private bath. Kitchen with maple cabinets. Asking $375k. Again I know above your range and like above. Consider costs of always having an hoa/condo fee verses not having one in your short term and long term costs
and it works.
Charming outside and inside.
