Brookside/Waldo Area Home For Sale

Many buyers me they want a house with ‘good bones’ — that is, a home with all the major expensive maintenance items completed.  It’s especially important to first time buyers who have to make every dollar count towards a down payment or closing costs.  They are often willing to remodel the inside of the home themselves.

This new listing has been very maintained by it’s current owner, who has recently replaced all of the pricey mechanical items:  the heating and air conditioning system and roof are newer; most all windows have been replaced; the electrical box was replaced and the foundation has been checked and braced.  It has a charming Tudor design, with stone and brick exterior, an enclosed side porch and a private driveway.

Inside, you’ll find a bedroom and full bath on the first floor, along with a spacious living room and dining room.  The kitchen has a gas stove and refrigerator–those appliances stay, along with the washer and dryer. Upstairs are two large bedrooms and another full bath.

This house does need some updating — you could spend a lot of money for a total rehab of the kitchen and baths or plan a more moderately priced project with some fresh paint, countertops and décor.  The location is very convenient–just off Holmes Road, on a bus route, within a mile or two of UMKC, the Plaza, Brookside/Waldo shops and restaurants.
