Well, here it is folks. I'm always asked, "Where is the best deal you've seen lately?", or "Where is a great deal that I can't pass up?". It seems I've found a fantastic deal, and no- it's not my listing. I've been showing homes to a client of mine from Michigan in the $400K range, and we came across this gem.
No, this is not a foreclosure, no this is not a short sale. You don't have to worry about getting to closing with a short sale, or negotiating with the bank on this one. This is a solid home that I just showed this past week and I think it's one of the best homes out there right now in the $400K price range.
It's a home in Bayview Farms on James Island, on tidal creek with dock in place, and has panoramic views of the marsh, many tidal creeks, and Clark Sound. This home was built by the Bayview Farms builder for his daughter. 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and 2,300 square feet. It has a huge garage underneath, with room for two cars and a boat, and is wired for phone and cable. As you walk in the door it has an open floor plan with hardwood floors, corian countertops in the kitchen, and a screened-in porch to take advantage of all the wildlife, ocean breezes, and great Charleston weather. Upstairs has the bedrooms, to take advantage of the wonderful views.
It's time to step it up to the next level and buy a great home with dock in place at a ridiculous price. Throw the crab pot off the dock in the morning, and have crab legs for dinner. You can also cast-net for some sweet Charleston creek shrimp, too.
Take a look at the listing at 1132 Wayfarer Lane for $415K, and let me know when you're ready to take a look!
Never Mind...Sold on 2/26/10!!
