How will you know when you find the right house? You'll know as soon as you walk into it! That initial burst of excitement will grow as you walk around until your emotions bubble up! I love watching a buyer's excitement grow and hearing, "I want this house!" ~ Kurt Nowacki
2011 3rd St NE is a rare find in Northeast Minneapolis!
This 2,527 square foot (2,213 finished), 2-story, 4-bedroom, 3-bath home includes a 3/4 master bath and full bath on the upper level plus a 1/2 bath on the main! In the past 20 years only (16) 2-story homes with (4) upper level bedrooms and 3 baths have been sold in Northeast!
The lot is 157' deep! In Northeast the standard lot is 125' deep.
The kitchen is a 17'4" x 15'7" east facing eat-in kitchen with an additional 6'6" x 3'7" space in the walk-in pantry. Natural light beams into the kitchen from (3) sides. There's room for a kitchen table near both the south facing and east facing windows too! Tired of working in a small, dark kitchen? Wouldn't it be nice to enjoy conversation with your friends and family while you are cooking? None of the other houses on the market in Northeast Minneapolis have a kitchen like this one!
The house has a deck on the front and the side! Enjoy the morning sun and the evening sunset! From dawn to dusk there's a spot on one of the decks for you!
When you compare this house to the other $325K+ homes on the market in Northeast you'll see that the other homes have a combination of significantly less square footage, smaller garages, less bathrooms, inferior condition and so on.
This house is a better value because...
*Quality Construction - No shortcuts - Solid Bones!
*The floors are level - Uneven settling twists a house up - This house doesn't have those problems - When you compare this house to the competition take note!!
*No retaining walls and no need for a retaining wall! Retaining wall issues are too often overlooked and can cost tens of thousands to repair. This yard doesn't call for retaining walls but don't forget to take note of retaining walls and consider the cost of replacing them before you buy!
*The layout - it flows - Yes, this is subjective but I think you'll agree! It takes a lot of money and effort to fix the Feng Shui in a cattywampus designed home! And, there are always plenty of those disasters on the market! You've probably already passed on a few of them!
*The layout - it makes sense too! Example - the 3/4 master bath and full bath are on the upper level along with the bedrooms! That makes sense. After all, how often do your friends come over for dinner and ask to jump in the shower? :)
*Be aware of the flip! You can add granite countertops to any house! Carpet is cheap! When you look at a quick cosmetic-flip, make sure the perfume isn't masking an issue! This house underwent a complete renovation in 1999 by a non-profit. When you compare the quality of the complete renovation of this house to a for-profit, quick cosmetic-flip some of the differences will be obvious but you'll have to count on an inspector to point out the others! Example: Flippers commonly install granite countertops, new light fixtures and new carpet but rarely update all the electrical, replace the shingles or repair the other behind-the-wall issues. Flippers are out to make a quick buck!
*More square footage! No odd or wasted space! It's easy to see where your furniture will fit!
*Lots of above grade space - more daylight! This house has nicely finished get-away basement space with a cement floor! Why do people carpet the basement? Because they need the space! Go ahead and put carpet down if you want but you don't need to do so in this house nor do you have to retreat to the basement to get-away as there is plenty of naturally lit space above grade!
*Nice 2-car garage! (Winter snow emergency alerts are coming!) Do you really want to park on the street? Want a workshop or need some maker space?
*No skylights! No grade issues! No gutter issues! This means water intrusion issues are less likely!
*Fixing water intrusion problems, if any exist, can really be costly and a big hassle too. There's a lot of interesting history that relates to the "Hill" and the "Valley" in Northeast and I love talking about that over coffee. But, as it relates to basement water intrusion issues, the soil around the valley of Northeast tends to be black or even sandy whereas the soil in the hills of Northeast tends to be clay. Water flows thru sandy soil but doesn't flow thru clay. That's why the houses with clay soil are more prone to having water issues in the basement. That's why you'll see so many houses on the Hill have sump pumps, sump baskets and interior drain tile. If you are comparing this Valley home to a home on the Hill, check to see if the Hill house has/needs drain tile!
*Location - Quiet street, yet a short walk to JAX Cafe, Mojo Coffee, Stanleys, Hai Hai, Grumpy's, Jimmy's, Maeves, Erte, Gasthof, Psycho Suzie's, Sentryz & the Sample Room! If you don't want to drive every place you go, you'll like this location!
*1 block from Bottineau Park - 5 blocks to the River!
