The Old Homestead

Well, since my realtor can't seem to move my old house in South Carolina, I'm going to try to do it here! (Has anyone actually sold a house on a blog before??) The house is in Rock Hill, SC and it is just right over the state line outside of bustling and beautiful Charlotte, NC. We are going back next Saturday to check in on it, and I doubt I will see a SOLD sign out front. We get a lot of traffic at the house, we have showings every week, but no bites yet. We moved out in December 2008 after living there for just over two years. It is a great house, I loved it, and it is in an older, established neighborhood with lots of tall trees and yards covered with azaleas and crepe myrtles, and all the homes were custom built so no two even slightly resemble each other. The subdivision is small, about 3-4 quaint and shady streets, and it is directly across the road from one of the best elementary schools in the area. The house was built in 1989 and is almost 2500 square feet, the wooded lot is a little over a half acre with a creek in the back. It's three bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, with two fireplaces. The garage is very large, and there is a big workshop under the house. The previous owner did additions that increased the square footage, and she repaired everything on our 2006 inspection report, including a new roof. And we did minor improvements such as a new hot water heater, new furnace, ceiling fans in all the rooms, some updated lighting, and a lot of painting. It's located just five miles from the shores of gorgeous Lake Wylie, yet only four miles from the interstate. We are currently asking $232,900 for it, which is less than what we paid for it in 2006. So, if you know of anyone moving to the Charlotte area soon, and they don't want to live IN the city and pay the outrageous taxes up in Mecklenburg County, give us a shout! I don't know if it's legal for me to advertise the house on this blog, and maybe this post will get removed or flagged, but what the heck. It can't hurt to try! Thanks for being indulgent of me, and sorry if this is breaking any blogger rules or offends anyone. (photos of the house before we moved out)
