Despite the slow housing market, sales continue in Brookside. Seems like everyone wants to live here…or at least consider it when looking for a new home. During a recent open house, I had four couples from North Kansas City interested in moving to the area–four different couples in three hours! That was unusual.
This home, at 441 W 58 Terrace, needs a new owner. It’s been on the market since spring, and is now reduced to $295,000. This is a lot of house for the money, especially considering the location. Why hasn’t it sold yet? Many reasons, I believe–the initial price was high for many buyers, it needs a little polishing up here and there, the backyard isn’t large and it’s perhaps too much house for empty nesters. The positives of this house are many: it’s on a great block (I used to live two homes down and know the neighbors!); it’s just a few blocks north of the Brookside shops and a few blocks south of Loose Park; it has four large bedrooms, three and a half baths, a two car garage and newer roof; it has hot water heat; a newer kitchen; a family room, cozy library and separate office space. There are many classic architectural details: a leaded glass window, original light fixtures, maid’s staircase, front porch, stucco and brick exterior. The owners want to move closer to school for their children. They are ready to entertain offers–so if you know of someone who is looking in the area–call (816 510 1262) or email me.

This home is such a great value and has so much to offer it’s next owners…help me get it sold!!
