How to Find the Property You Want in a Tight Market

Currently in Dunedin, finding a house you want to buy at a price you want to pay is like looking for a needle in a haystack. It’s no secret that there are more people looking for houses to buy than there are houses for sale.

But, fear not!

At Living Corporation we do more than just list houses for sale (although you can see those below). Our approach is different.

Our entire property consultancy team (all 12 of them) combines their in-depth knowledge of the local market to help you find a house you can be proud to call home.

Even if your house is not listed for sale with us. Or you have no home to sell.

At Living Corporation, we put YOU first.

  • Three double bedrooms and each with a built in wardrobe. Open plan kitchen dining space with separate front lounge

What a little cutie! This turn of the century cottage sits proudly above the North East Valley Cricket Grounds and tantalizingly close to the cafes and bakeries at Gardens Corner. With appeal to many different buyers including couples, families and investment buyers, this 100 square metre, weatherboard home with semi-detached storage rooms, laundry and second toilet is so right for so many.

The kitchen and bathroom have been modernized and the dining is open plan to the kitchen and adjacent is the bathroom complete with shower over bath, vanity, toilet and heated towel rail. The kitchen with Fisher and Paykel Dishdrawer and double glazing is a functional space, has this most amazing view down to the cricket ground and across to the gardens. This view is expanded upon from the front deck which is accessed through the quaint French doors that lead from the front lounge. Bathed in sun and blessed with elevation, this deck is a real selling point for sun lovers, view hunters and those who enjoy socializing late into the balmy summer evenings.

All three bedrooms are doubles and all have built in wardrobes. If one were buying as an investment property, the lounge would be used as a fourth bedroom and the dining space could be a small common living area.

Out the back, yet still under cover of a clearlite roof, extra bonus rooms can be found that include a garden shed, a combination storage room and laundry, an office and a separate toilet.

Heating is via a heat pump and an open fire in the lounge. Insulation is done in the ceiling and underfloor.

The grounds have a collection of roses, shrubs and hedging that afford the property significant privacy which is another welcome selling feature.

If you are in the market for a simple and indeed a simply delightful home with enough character to charm you, 27 Glencairn is a must see this weekend at the scheduled open home or by private appointment. Offers will be considered in the week following the first open home, so please be quick to view.
