Featured Property: 9 Becket

I am excited to introduce to you my new listing at 9 Becket. This is one of those “opportunity houses”. In other words, it needs a total remodel.

Located in Mt. Park, it is 3115 square feet (does not include 518 square feet of unfinished basement) for just $489,900. It’s the largest, cheapest house on the market in Lake Oswego right now. It was built in 1981 and the current owner has owned it since 1985. That says a lot about how great a house is because the current owner simply had no reason to leave. According to the current owner, it was also a part of the Street of Dreams in 1981. It comes with features that today are expected in high-end homes. Things like double sinks in the bathrooms and a master bath with both a soaking tub and a custom tile shower. The floor plan is wonderful and is suitable to today’s standards with a very large kitchen and 2 family rooms. Today they call it a family room and a bonus room, but you get the idea.

What this house needs is a new owner to love it. The interior finishes are pretty much all original with brown tile from the 80’s, lots of wall paper, and, yes, even some pink carpet. It is being sold “as is” and will require either cash or rehab financing. It will take money to re-do what is needed and that is why it is priced the way that it is.

Here’s some brief stats:
