So I’ve been a realtor for a few months now, and I am really enjoying it. I’ve had the opportunity to work with some great buyers, list some nice homes for sale, and check out what’s behind the front doors of all those homes I used to drive by and oogle.
However, I’ve been suffering from some serious side effects due to this change in career – the biggest one being falling in love with homes all over town when our own house is far from ready to sell! So instead of making any rash real estate decisions, I thought I’d share my favorite finds with you.
I’m sticking with what I know (Northwest Arkansas) for now, but hopefully my house-crashing friends out in blogland can appreciate pretty houses, no matter where they are! 🙂 Without further ado, here are a couple of my favorite homes on the market today. Click on the address to see more photos and a description of these homes.
808 Fritz Drive ($265,000)
A downtown beauty, this home has been almost completely updated. You get modern conveniences and finishes in a historic beautiful home. Doesn’t get much better than that!
1008 East Trust Street ($595,000)
This was the first home ever built by the architect Fay Jones, famous in our area for his mid-century modern designs. It has been recently remodeled and boasts great views!
1400 West Cleveland ($349,900)
Anyone who was a student at the University of Arkansas will probably recognize this iconic yellow house. It has always been one of my favorites and is so well maintained. Maybe we can make it ours *next time* it’s up for sale!
So what do you think of my picks? You can probably tell by the properties I selected that we tend to like old and updated rather than brand-spankin’ new around the Heard household. Stephen and I would love for our next home to be one with a great history and within walking distance of all the downtown Fayetteville attractions, but for now I’m content just showing and selling these beauties!
