A San Mateo Home Waiting For a Growing Family Willing to do Sweat Equity


I’m a sucker for views.  I love water views.  I love canyon views.  I especially love the views looking towards the bay and San Francisco.  Yesterday day was Broker Tour Day and one of the houses we saw is just crying out for a growing family willing to do some sweat equity to bring this gem in the rough into the 21st century. 


This house has 3 large bedrooms, a huge playroom downstairs, two rooms to configure into bedrooms, den, family room or what ever rooms.  A nice sized flat yard, and beautiful hardwood floors upstairs where the actual living space is.  The kitchen is original 1950’s and so are the 2 bathrooms.  With a little imagination this house will come into the 21st century and sparkle like a diamond.


It’s priced at $985,000 and for that you get 2230 square feet, according to the county, but who knows, it might be more.  You get a solid house in southern San Mateo sitting in the hills facing north and the views of San Mateo north toward San Francisco are unobstructed both upstairs and downstairs. 


It’s listed by John Kenny and I’m sure he’d be delighted to have me show it to you.  What are you waiting for?  I don’t know where you’ll find this much square footage with a view for under a million bucks.  Wells Fargo and Bank of America are lending on properties like these if you have a 720 FICO.  If you have a smaller house to sell and will roll your equity into this with 20% down you’re set.

Our Spring Market is finally here and we are beginning to see some very nice homes for sale in San Mateo.  If you want San Mateo let’s talk.  You can reach me at 650-696-2820.
