I have held real estate licenses in Texas and Ohio and have an active rehab business in Cleveland and Pittsburgh. I do not wish to work with a realtor at this time and have already chosen the person I am going to work with if I change my mind.
So realtors, make sure you identify yourself immediately before wasting both of our time and risking your license.
My Mom and step dad bought this home in 1980. It was the social center of our family for 35 years until Mom passed in 2016. It sits on the 17th tee of the Lakewood County Club (par 3) course and we have always had fun watching the poor old golfers sweat over the water hazard lake and then plunk the ball in the drink to major consternation; sometimes 3 or 4 times!!
I am the trustee of my son's trust which owns the property. He lives and works in the Silicon Valley and is getting married this year. I have some business interests that are begging for additional growth capital.
We are torn about giving up the place, but if we could find the right family . . . . . that could enjoy it as much or more than we have for so many years, that would be our goal.
We refuse to haggle about price, you can easily check the comps on this site and several others to verify value. We see it as trending toward $350k.
This Ryan homes development traded in the mid 400's in 2006 and 2007.
No one else in Lakewood has our view (which must be important to you or you wouldn't have read this far), Mom spent a lot of time designing the kitchen which has a window to the lanai, and our double wide sliding glass doors to the lanai which effectively incorporates the open space right into the home floor plan like no other that I have seen.
If the pics and this description resonate with you, give me a call. I will be here until Feb 7 and my friend Pete who house sits for us will be glad to show it to you after that date.
We are painting the exterior this trip and will continue upgrades (the master bedroom and bath need some work, and we will negotiate a flooring allowance with you as Mom's carpet is old and shot).
