“Not a Drive-By”

Quick, test your knowledge of Twin Cities real estate, and guess how much the single family home pictured above is listed for:

A. $149,000
B. $249,000
C. $419,900
D. $599,900

Give up?

Here are three more, very significant clues: 1) the home has been completely remodeled; 2) it’s located in Minneapolis’ tony Kenwood neighborhood (just east of Lake of the Isles, and close to downtown; 3) appearances to the contrary, it’s over 3,000 FSF.

Correct answer: D
As they say, “the curb appeal is deceptive” (also commonly billed as “not a drive-by”).
P.S.: and yes, curb appeal matters: the home has been on the market for over one year.
