53 Pine Grove Drive
I know the current Halifax Real Estate market can seem grueling and a bit daunting, especially for first-time home buyers. The reality is that it is hard to break into this market and start your joyous journey of homeownership. The tricky budget area we are talking about is between $300,000 and $500,000. This is where roughly 50% of the home buyers are currently looking.
Being highly competitive, this segment of the market is still seeing multiple offer situations in many cases along with frustrated buyers. It means the home they were looking for potentially could sell for out of their budget, or for more than they were willing to pay. They might see a home that is in their budget but can’t justify spending an “x” amount on the house with all the upgrades that will be needed to make it their own home.
Which brings me to my newest listing! Hitting the market today, is my beautiful Spryfield single level home of 53 Pine Grove Drive. Listed under $400,000, this bungalow is move-in ready, which is hard to find within this budget. Of course, every home will take time for you to make it your own, and that is exactly how you should approach this beauty. When I say move-in ready, I mean it. You wouldn’t need to do much other than a few touch ups here and there. Not to mention, the basement is unfinished and is a blank canvas for you to put your stamp on over time. And don’t worry, just like every other Nova Scotian home, there is a work bench down there.
I love a lot about what 53 Pine Grove Drive has to offer. Not only is it a 3 Bedroom and 2 Bath home, but it has a spacious kitchen that any first-time home buyer would love to cook in. Did I mention the yard? No? Well, it’s not too often a home comes to market in this price-point with such a beautiful backyard. Especially, this time of year when all the leaves are changing. As a year round BBQ’er, I would love to have a Fall gathering on the deck while watching the kids (or dog kids) play in the leaves. From the moment you arrive at the house you are greeted with a cute and gleeful vibe. This home is meant to be loved.
Location, Location……you know the last part! What a great area. Not only is there an elementary school on the street, you also don't have to walk far for a bus stop as the bus route is on Pine Grove (Convenient, eh?). I also noticed that Spryfield is on the up and up, as I was driving to my listing appointment and noticed that there is now a Starbucks on Herring Cove Rd, which is only a few minutes walk! If you don’t want to spend $7 bucks for a cup of coffee after your foray into homeownership, ol’ faithful Tim Hortons is an even shorter walk. Coffee and donuts aren’t the only amenity on your doorstep either. Sobeys close by, so is Canadian Tire to keep you busy on that work bench. I love the community of Spryfield and how close it is to Halifax. Don’t worry, Uber can have you downtown in no time!
53 Pine Grove is ready to be loved by a new owner. I have no doubt it won’t be on the market long, so I reach out to me or any of the Coldwell Banker Maritime Realty team to book your showing asap!
