The Five Least Expensive Sales in the New River Valley – 4Q 2011

The Christmas lights – yes, around here we say Christmas – have been put away, the tree has been taken to the curb, and the final sales figures for the fourth quarter of 2011 are rolling in.  We’ll get to the most expensive sales in the New River Valley soon, but first, let’s look at the least expensive real estate sales for the fourth quarter.  Everyone wants a deal, right?

  • 124 Monroe Street, Radford – built in 1945, this handyman – or handylady – special was sold AS-IS, no repairs. The listing should have said “bring cash and a sledgehammer”, as it doesn’t appear that the house would have been eligible for any kind of loan.  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, however, as the house sold in six days.  Listed for $30000, it sold for $24000.
  • 1175 Murray Street, Christiansburg – Another handyman special, this 1100 square foot foreclosure in Christiansburg needed a lot of work.  Situated on a corner lot, the location was very nice, but every square foot needed work.  Originally listed for $52900, it sold for $30100.
  • 1354 Snapdragon Lane, Christiansburg – I love listing descriptions sometimes.  This one was honest … “no wiring … no heat source … no drywall … no electricity …”  This looks like it might have been a good deal, however, as it sat on nearly 10 acres of land in Montgomery County.  Listed for $32500, it sold in 11 days for full price.
  • 2239 Gingerbread Lane, Christiansburg – 1657 square feet of blissful enjoyment.  No, not really, I just wanted tos ay “blissful enjoyment”.  Listed for $72900, this 1950’s ranch on 1.71 acres in Christiansburg had three bedrooms, one bath, and sold for $40000.
  • 1602 Wadsworth Street, Radford – this was a cute little home in Radford, on a corner lot.  With four bedrooms and a bath, this was a nice home in need of some updating and basement work, but all things considered was livable from day one.  Listed for $84900, it sold for $42000, and someone got a nice little home.

Coming up, the five most expensive homes sold in Blacksburg, Christiansburg and Radford in the fourth quarter of 2011.
