The folks at Forrest Financial Service have done it again – and in a very good way. Not so long ago, the Lykins Neighborhood wasn’t the greatest place to call home. Crime, trash and a deteriorating infrastructure all led to a neighborhood in decline. These days, an active neighborhood association coupled with some fantastic urban farming all points to some major league revitalization goin’ on!

In the heart of Lykins is this week’s featured listing at 810 Monroe, a classic American Bungalow that’s in darn fine condition. It still has nearly all of the original woodwork and is priced right to boot.  

Situated on a high terrace with an underground front garage, this home is neat as a pin. The original hardwoods are in very good condition and the home still retains the original floor plan with two bedrooms separated by a single full bath, complete with the original claw-foot tub!

The home retains the arched doorways in every room, including the arched cut-out for the old style refrigerators with the rounded corners. Pure classic! Mechanically, the house has been upgraded throughout. Updated plumbing and a new 100-amp electrical box mean everything is up to date in this Kansas City home. Add central air, forced air gas heat, ceiling fans and insulated vinyl siding and you’ve got a great combination that’s bound to please when the utility bills come due.

The house is listed at $34,900, a fantastic price given the load of amenities that come with the house. Throw in the owner financing at a competitive interest rate and you’ve got an excellent opportunity to build equity in a great house in a great neighborhood. Don’t like this house? Forrest Financial has many others to choose from. Just visit their website at www.nobanks.info. If you’d like to check out this house personally, call Forrest Financial at (816) 914-3411 or (816) 376-0376. Mike, Debbie or Frank would be happy to give you a formal walk-through of this house or any of the other fine properties they have for sale.
