Least Expensive Home Reported Sold
The least expensive home reported sold this week was a 1125 SF 3 bedroom 1 bath house on less than 0.49 acres in Anderson. It sold for $12,000 CASH after being on the market for 8 days. Originally listed at $14,900 when it was first listed back in 2013.
It appears this home has been on the market several different times with the same agent/company. It looks like it goes under contract and then never closes. Quite possible this is due to a tax lien on the property that is mentioned in the private remarks of the MLS.
Located in the 29625 Zip Code and the Westside High, Robert Anderson Middle and Whitehall Elementary school district per MLS info.
Foreclosure. House needs work. No air but has natural gas heat. While it might, possibly, maybe be a good deal IF you are realistic about the work the home needs and the major red flag of a tax lien on the property, I wouldn’t touch this home with a 10 foot pole.
There are plenty of homes that do NOT have the negative issues this home has.
Most Expensive Home Reported Sold
The most expensive home reported sold this week was a 3250 SF 5 bedroom 2.5 bath house on less than 0.99 acres in Easley. It sold for $280,500 after being on the market for 74 days. Originally hit the market at $289,000. The seller paid $7500 of the buyer’s closing costs.
Located in the 29642 Zip Code and the Powdersville High, Powdersville Middle and Concrete Primary school district per MLS info.
This is 1 of the 3 homes reported sold this week with an Easley address that are actually in Anderson County. You will find homes with addresses that can fool you. Just shows why double checking everything is so important.
Nice home in move in condition with lots of upgrades. Fireplace in the family room, granite counter tops in the kitchen, some motorized blinds/shades. Sun room. Master suite has jetted tub and separate shower plus a tricked out walk in closet from California Closets.
Sold Deal of the Week
In my opinion, the best deal of the homes sold this week was a brick 1900 SF 3 bedroom 2 bath home on 0.55 acres in the city limits of Anderson. It sold for $91,000 after being on the market for 21 days. Originally hit the market at $95,000.
Located in the 29625 Zip Code and the Westside High, Lakeside Middle and Whitehall Elementary school district per MLS info.
