South Bay Bargain of the Week: Over 1700 Square Feet at $499K!

sawgrass.jpgThis home located at 1598 Sawgrass Drive in San Jose is spacious, offers four bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths, and has a wonderfully large eat-in kitchen.  What’s wrong with it, you might ask?  It has the misfortune of being located in the besieged Alum Rock district of San Jose. 

If you are willing to take a risk on this area again rising when the market recovers, this is a lot of home for under $500K.  It has a fireplace, central air, Pergo flooring, and a nice backyard done in easy care brickwork.

The home itself is 1786 square feet, and is located on a 2613 square foot lot.  This is not a lot of yard, but if you are looking for easy maintenance – you got it!

This home is only 10 years old, and is easily accessible to major freeways which makes commuting easier.  It would be a great family home for first time buyers. It has also been on the market for roughly 160 days.
