This morning I was doing some research on affordable housing for first time buyers shopping in Keene, NH and I couldn't believe the number of great properties available to these buyers! At any given time Keene typically has approximately 115-130 single family residential properties on the market in all price ranges. Of those, today there are 21 properties between the price of $145,000 and $190,000 (the most popular price range for first time buyers I've worked with this year.
My most favorite listing is priced at $179, 900 and is located on 46 Arlington Avenue in Keene, NH. This listing is my favorite because it's very showing and attractive to a buyer looking for the following:
- 4 bedrooms (this is unusual for this price)
- Recently remodelled and with newer appliances (stainless steel appliances!)
- Spacious (this has a beautiful finished basement master bedroom suite with a classy full bathroom.)
- Yard for the kids in a good neighborhood and ALSO in West Keene (a very commonly requested destination)
So why hasn't this listing sold? I'm not sure but I really want to work with a buyer on this one. Every once in a while I spot a house I believe in, one that I personally love and one that I'd feel really good about placing a buyer in. This is the one.
If you're a buyer and this is your price range, call me for a showing. I will be happy to put together a tour of homes in your price range (and include this one if you wish:) )
