Selling Our House
My husband and I just recently made the decision to sell our house. It was not an easy decision, since this was our first house, but it was a necessary decision due to some impending health issues. We have been struggling with my health for years, but it has taken a turn for the worse and the bills have become overwhelming. Plus, my health makes it very hard to make it up our entry stairs.
Regardless, it has still been scary and stressful, and has been a difficult decision.
We know this home will find a great new owner, and we are hoping that by spreading the word we might be able to find a buyer before we list the home, saving us on some seller fees. Even if you yourself are not interested in the home, please spread the word to anyone you know who might be interested! :)
This house is a WONDERFUL house. When we purchased it, it was a one-owner house, and you could really tell. The house is a 3 bed, 1 and 3/4 bath house located within walking distance to Fontenelle Forest in Bellevue, NE. The exact address is 2405 Chandler Rd E, Bellevue, NE 68005. We are listing it for $119,500 - it is appraised for $130,000.
It features an enclosed front porch, walk out basement, easy access to the interstate, and many updates on a large private lot. The kitchen was completely remodeled in 2007 (including new cabinets, countertops and floors), the main floor bathroom floor was newly added in 2007 and the tub surround was new in 2008. There are new ceiling fans in every bedroom, and the third bedroom has completely refinished hardwood floors. There are hardwood floors located throughout the main floor in every bedroom, the hallway and the living room under the carpeting, which was new in 2007. The windows are brand new, installed in September of 2009! They are energy star certified and very beautiful.
Outside there is 1/2 acre of yard with plenty of vegetation and wildlife. The back of the house faces a large open field with no neighbors!! The house was newly painted in 2007 and won't need to be repainted for many more years. There is a small storage shed off the back of the property. The retaining wall is a beautiful red stone that was newly built in 2007. The yard features low maintanance zoysia grass - no watering needed! It also doesn't require a lot of mowing.
Because we are so close to Fontenelle Forest, we get a variety of wildlife on our property. We have seen everything from deer to turkeys and even a beaver once! It is a beautiful view from the dining room and master bedroom.
The basement is the size of the home itself and is unfinished, so there is a lot of room to expand! It also contains plenty of shelves, and there is a mini shop in the garage, making it a great home for anyone who likes to build or create! The basement also contains a storm shelter that could double as a pantry.
The neighborhood is very quiet and safe, with little to no crime and a park within walking distance that has views of the river! All the neighbors are very friendly and quiet. Just two blocks down from the home there is a Sara Lee Bakery, so the neighborhood almost always smells of freshly baked bread. It is wonderful!
We are more than willing to have our agent show you the home prior to when we list it, so if you are interested you can just let us know! You can find our contact information on our website: http://www.javajesspublishing.com under the contact us link. We can't post our email here because there are numerous internet "trolls" out there that would use it to spam us.
Thanks so much for looking! We hope to have more pictures soon, if the snow will ever let up. ;)
