Last week we covered a great deal on a renovated 3 BR/2BA townhome listed for $139k in Spring Branch, that went under contract hours after our deal of the week posting. This week’s Deal of the Week is a single-family home with a price that’s looking pretty good if you don’t like the idea of sharing walls as you do in a townhome.
This renovated home at 8451 Sonneville Drive comes with brand new hardwood floors throughout as well as countless other updates including new granite counters, new faucets, recent a/c and furnace and backsplash in the kitchen. There really isn’t anything these guys (or girls) didn’t touch when getting this house ready to sell.
It’s located just off of Bingle and provides easy access to Hempstead Highway, 290, 610, BW8 and i10 by the way of Bingle.
The Price: $188,500
This home was just listed and is priced to sell at $188,500 or $133.49 per square foot and features 3 full bedrooms, 1 full bath, and 1 half bath.
Why You’ll Love It …
This home looks like the sellers spared no expense or at least addressed all of the issues that you would want addressed when considering buying an old house like this, as it was built in 1955. Don’t let the old age fool you though, the reality is that they made houses better back then and a lot of these older homes in Spring Branch actually have great bones left.
The biggest reason we think you’ll love this home is that it there’s really no better options for the price in all of Spring Branch and we expect this one to sell pretty quickly just like our other ‘Deal of the Weeks’.
If you’re looking for a single-family home that you can call your own and not worry about the maintenance of having to deal with an old HVAC, roof or plumbing, this truly is a great deal!
The location is also excellent being just a few minutes away from Hempstead Highway, 290, 610, BW 8 and of course i10.
… And Why You Might Not
The one caveat with this home that might be a deal breaker for some is the lack of a garage. According to the sellers, the previous owners converted the garage to indoor space but it’s still a good deal. Whether it’s your first home or your first investment property, this has our stamp of approval.
