Area: This is a good area of Richardson, this property is very close to elementary school (walking distance), it’s in a cul-de-sac, most properties are sold above $110 to $120 per sq.ft. This is an upcoming neighborhood of North Richardson because of Yale and Dartmouth Elementary are highly rated.

Neighborhood: Off Yale Blvd, this cul-de-sac has less than 10 properties, and all are custom homes, seems like a very nice neighborhood.

Layout: Almost 2,000 sq.ft, open space living room (1), 2nd living room is kind of at back of kitchen with wet-bar, it is like a family room or can be used as a 4th bedroom (but has a wet-bar). Uncommon to see properties have 2 living rooms in this area anymore.

Pros and Cons

Pros: 1. Layout – Good layout, spacious rooms throughout the property
2. Flooring – Most flooring have been changed (laminate flooring and tiles), the only rooms require to change are carpets – living room and bedrooms.
3. Lighting – Natural lights in most rooms, feel warm and nice.
4. Bathroom sizes – both master and main bathrooms are good sized bathrooms, there is also a hallway toilet off the kitchen.
5. HVAC – AC Condenser looks new and furnace working when I was there at 68F, HVAC unit also seems OK, suggest to service the unit.
6. Termite Inspection – There is a report there that it was done recently.
7. Roof Condition – Roof looks in acceptable condition
8. Backyard – Good sized backyard, and with a deck as well
9. Fireplace – Looks like a brand new fireplace with bricks – really nice look.

1. Foundation Cracks – some visible cracks on the left side of the property (outside 2nd living room and some near kitchen area)
2. Dips in dining area -tiles show a visible slope/grade in the breakfast areas, but there are no cracks on tiles and walls – this could be due to bad tiling or could be foundation – foundation check is required during inspection.
3. Bathrooms look outdate – the master bathroom looks outdated and just a shower area with no bath-tub, the shower area may need to be replaced.
4. Fence side gate collapsed – it has collapsed but this is an easy repair.
5. Kitchen Appliances – They look outdated and may need to be replaced
