A lot of house for a little money!

Once again, Mike and Debbie Forrest have taken a neighborhood eyesore and created a home that’s both pleasing to the eye and ready for new owners. The home at 433 S. Oakley St. is a traditional 1.5-story brick modified Shirtwaist.


Inside, almost everything from the studs out has been upgraded or replaced, starting with brand new carpet over the original hardwoods. The formal dining room flows into the updated, eat-in kitchen that’s been outfitted with new cabinets, countertops, sink and dishwasher. A brand new tile floor and backsplash have been installed, as well. There has even been a three-quarters bath added to the first floor.


Upstairs, there are two bedrooms and a full bathroom that have been carefully crafted from the gabled second floor.
Protecting the investment is a newer Timberline-style 25-year roof. All the electrical and plumbing systems have been updated from top to bottom as added insurance. Most of the windows have been replaced recently with thermal windows.

The house also sports a full, walk-out basement. A newer forced air gas furnace and central air conditioning unit handle climate control year-round. Although there is no off-street parking, there is backyard access off the alley behind the house where a concrete parking pad very easily could be added.

To take a look at this property just a few blocks away from historic Budd Park, call Mike or Debbie Forrest at (816) 407-7997 or (816) 914-3411. Reduced again to a low $47,000 with financing options available for qualified buyers, this is an opportunity to start building equity in a great neighborhood in Historic Northeast.
