That looks like at least a couple of houses I went to back in SA. What's the neighborhood?

Sonoma Ranch off Kyle Seale Parkway. (Helotes-ish)

I didn't run into any 1.5 story front steps on this one. The only nice thing about some of these two story garages are when owners put in car lifts.

Yep, I knew it had to be familiar for a reason. I knew someone on Feather Bluff and another on Essen Forest and we were over there at least one/week. A friend of a friend somehow managed to get a pool into their back yard at the neighborhood your picture came from. There was hardly a square foot of flat ground on that lot but they did it somehow.

Apparently you will not.

At what point do you cut and run from a listing? 2,036 days on the market and not one price change.

Here's a great listing. http://www.har.com/235-chimney-rock-rd/sale_15330488


Among various instances of misspellings and poor grammar, we have an "inviting mid-century"..."rustic-western chic"..."mid-western feel (assuming this is some little known variation of a mid-century)"..."minimalist vibe"..."Santa Fe hues"...home.

Is that a telephone by the crapper in one of the pictures?

she sure does go through a lot of effort to dress up a terd that looks to be close to lot value.

It's been remuddled pretty badly, but it's salvageable. The place is a better starting point than where we live. Turrible addition of "rustic" to a place designed to be the opposite of that.

the bigger question to me is why did HCAD raise the guys market value 43% this year and his next door neighbor only 14%.

They jacked up with improvement value by 227% this year when the last recorded remodel was in 1998 but didn't touch his neighbors improvement value.

Somebody needs to be protesting.

I actually like the house and the mid-century "vibe." Not sure about being on Chimney Rock and directly on a bayou/tributary though. But yeah...that's probably close to lot value...

Your bread will have a wonderful view of the kitchen!

That kitchen in general seems just a little off... I can see the beginning and end of each sheet of mosaic tile on the backsplash. It's a flip?

well it definitely died a little. i was away at work and not searching hard, and kind of really narrowed my main searching down to a pretty specific area, so that took a lot of the random stuff out of my searches. i will NEVER get tired of seeing houses or terrible realtor ideas come to fruition via the pages of HAR.

I ran across a toilet in an atrium last week and didn't post it. Can't find it now.

God, I love this town. They don't care one lick about permits.

I happened across a terrible MLS listing earlier this week and it reminded me how much I love this thread. Y'all have great timing!

Just now discovered this thread. I peruse HAR almost daily and regularly come across awful listings, so I'll try to contribute.

I thought you were going to say it was the big place just outside 410 between Babcock and Glencrest that someone was working on for years.

Rivermist?
The retaining wall used to be about 30 feet thataway ------->

How long do you want to ignore this user?
Good guess, but no.

I've done one or two appraisals along near that retaining wall in rivermist, ouch.


This was some minor 2 street development inside Loop 410 along Ingram. Another case of a builder has a set of plans and will shove the house anywhere.

Ok, I'm likely to regret this but I'd love to here the critics tell me what o can do to improve our listing.

It seems to me to be well priced (draws big open house crowds) but we are 5 weeks in and no significant interest yet.

What am I missing?

A million dollar home with low oil prices? That and no garage?

House looks damn nice otherwise.

Personally, I would change up the sitting area. It looks... Creepy? with just the two chairs. I'd ditch the chevron rug and if you can, move the toddler bed out.
