Better move fast on this unbelievably priced fixer upper in Houston's River Oaks area
There's an unbelievable deal available in River Oaks right now, but you won't find it in MLS. The home at 2424 Locke Ln. is priced to move at $1,100,000 — almost a million below any other home in the Avalon Place neighborhood and below the Harris County tax appraisal of $1,218,722.
Chris Grizzaffi of Keller Williams Metropolitan has the private listing, where most of the nearby homes come in around $1.9 million. He is currently taking offers from agents and savvy investors, who are bound to see this as an almost unbelievable opportunity. And there's no catch.
The home, originally built in the 1940s, was renovated in the 1980s but is in need of updating. That means there's lots of wallpaper to be stripped, outdated tile to be replaced, and carpet to be pulled up. A cosmetic overhaul would polish up the jewel that this property already is, and the price takes into account these necessary upgrades.
The buyer gets to renovate the home to his or her tastes, using the five bedrooms, six-and-a-half bathrooms, multiple fireplaces, and several spacious living areas as an exciting blank canvas.
At the heart of it, the home's No. 1 selling point is its highly desirable location. Avalon Place was originally settled in the 19th century, and today the 230 homes are part of a tight-knit neighborhood that also happens to be in the heart of Houston. It has the benefits of River Oaks — which includes stellar public and private schools — while also being adjacent to the high-end retail and trendy restaurants of Upper Kirby.
This property is represented by Chris Grizzaffi of Keller Williams Metropolitan, a member of Keller Williams Luxury International.
