When you’re raising a family of your own, there are several factors to consider outside your personal preference. The same goes for buying a new home. You aren’t just shopping for yourself, you have to ask questions like:
- Are there any safety hazards?
- Is there enough room for us to grow into?
- What features will need to be updated and how often?
- What school district is the home in – is it good?
- What’s the neighborhood like?
- What does the commute from home, school and work look like?
- Is the yard big enough to accommodate a pet?
With multiple scenarios running through your head, it’s important to work with a realtor who’s knowledgeable of the area and can search out the best value home for your family’s budget. In today’s blog, we’ll be highlighting some of our favorite homes in the Norman market and their key features.
4 Bed | 3 Bath | $269,000
This 4-bedroom gem is located in a quiet cul-de-sac within walking distance of Truman Elementary School. It’s been recently updated with fresh paint and all new carpeting so you won’t need to do much before moving in! Our favorite part of the home is the downstairs. In the living and dining area, there’s a roaring fireplace perfect for wintertime s’mores and cocoa.
The winding staircase is also an eye-catcher, leading upstairs to the bedrooms. We don’t know about you, but we imagine it as the perfect backdrop for prom photos! As far as appliances go, the downstairs HVAC was replaced in 2016 while the upstairs was replaced in 2016. Meaning, this home is great if you’re looking for a move-in ready home.
3 Bed | 2 Bath | 2,280 Sq. Ft. | $39,900
This spacious 3-bedroom home features two living and two dining areas. A perfect home for entertaining, it also features a covered porch, deck and plenty of storage in the backyard.
If you host birthday parties, barbecues and family get-togethers, this is the pick for you. However, the property does need some remodeling work. So, if you’re a fan of a little home improvement in exchange for a lower asking price – you’re in luck! This one is priced to sell so you better hop on it quick.
3612 Quail Springs
4 Bed | 2.5 Bath | 2462 Sq. Ft. | $259,000
This 4-bedroom home is nestled on a quiet street, but within a short commute to shopping, dining an I-35 access. With two living and two dining areas, this home is spacious as well – which makes it great for growing families.
One of the extra areas could also be used as a home office (which is a tax mark off, we might add). The master bedroom is located downstairs while the others are upstairs. This can give mom and dad some much-needed relaxation as the kids watch a movie in a nearby room.
316 Ridge Bluff
3 Bed | 2 Bath | $154,900
This 3-bedroom, one-level room is absolutely charming. Tucked in away in a quiet neighborhood on the corner, this home has some amazing luxury features. It’s granite countertops, gas range, pull out cabinets and maximum storage is perfect for a home chef – or for hosting big family dinners. The home also comes with a washer or dryer which can provide some upfront savings.
The porcelain tile in the living room, complete with a gas fireplace, creates the perfect setting for watching classic films during Christmas. The home also features a covered patio and sun shades, providing the perfect spot to relax down to some lemonade after a day of swimming.
3 Bed | 2 Bath | $224,900
This 3-bedroom is a rare find in west Norman. As a single-owner home, you’re sure to stumble upon countless benefits! Custom window treatments and crown molding give the space a feeling of luxury. The home also comes with a washer, dryer and second refrigerator!
This gem also features a ton of storage with built-in shelving. It also has recessed ceiling in the master bedroom along with a jetted tub in the bathroom for the ultimate spa-like experience. Additionally, the home has a low-maintenance backyard complete with a patio, storage shed and in-ground storm shelter (which is helpful during tornado season).
