Lake Forest is one of the hottest selling subdivisions in Baldwin County, with over 90 homes sold year to date. Nearly half of those sales were closed in the last 3 months. The numbers are pretty staggering and I bet most of you out there are wondering, how is this possible? First, it is important to point out that Lake Forest still holds the record as the largest subdivision in the State of Alabama, so there is much more inventory than other smaller subdivisions in the area. I think most people are attracted by the location. You can be on Interstate 10 in not time at all and you are super close to a multitude of shopping and dining options. Yet, above all, I believe the primary draw to be the affordability.
Such is the case for our newest Lake Forest listing at 185 Lakeview Loop. This is a lot of house for the money, with well over 2000 square feet of heated and cooled living space! Not only that, but this home is in excellent condition. There are some areas, most notably the kitchen, where the new owners will likely want to update the current style to their more modern personal taste, as granite and stainless steel appliances are the standard right now. Also, there is a pretty consistent push back from wallpaper going on. That said, I think prospective buyers will be wowed by the floors, the fireplace and the cathedral living room ceiling. The master is downstairs and that seems to be very important to a lot of the home buyers in our market.
The kicker I believe is going to be the garage. The garage was converted into a den, which could be utilized for a number of additional uses, like:
- Home Office
- Media Room
- MAN CAVE!
Sacrificing the garage for an attractive living space is a “love it” or “hate it” addition. In this case, I think it would be ideal for a growing family or someone who works from home. The space was very well done and blends flawlessly with the rest of the home. There is also a storage shed in the rear, that’s perfect for bikes and lawn equipment.
I mentioned that Lake Forest is a very large subdivision and it is true that if you are not familiar with it or operating under the guidance of a GPS, you can get a little lost in here. This brings us to yet another advantage of 185 Lakeview Loop. This home is very close to the entrance to the subdivision off of Highway 90, which offers fast access to the interstate and for the handy guys out there, Home Depot is practically in walking distance!
