809 Littlejohn Ave Jacksonville, NC - Home For Sale in Jacksonville North Caroina

809 Littlejohn Avenue in Jacksonville, NC will be officially on the market as of April 15, 2015! 

I have been anxiously awaiting the unveiling of this home as I have watched it slowly undergo a remodel beginning earlier this year. Today I had the pleasure of walking through the completed product.

Some people ask me what my favorite part of my job is as a REALTOR in Jacksonville, NC. Given the fact that articles have been published stating that real estate agents have the most high-stressed careers with an outrageous suicide rate, what on earth would keep me in this business for nearly 20 years? Here it is: not only do I get to tour some of the most amazing homes in our area, but I also get to assist other professionals in getting them sold. This not only helps the homeowner, but it also helps buyers who are less than educated about our local market see the best bargain buys and make great investments for themselves. Furthermore, I get to help out professionals with their marketing and in turn make them smile when their happy clients close on a home sold. This is a WIN-WIN-WIN if I ever did see one and makes getting out of bed to go to work each day a blessing!

So now that I've had my moment to ramble about why I love viewing and talking about homes for sale in Jacksonville so much, here is my latest find of the day: 809 Littlejohn Avenue which was built in 1968 and completely remodeled, rehabbed, refreshed, and renewed into practically new! My favorite thing about this house (other than the awesome location) is the beautifully finished hardwood floors. I am so glad that the owner decided not to put carpet on the stairs, as this just gives the home such a classy appeal.

Enjoy my video walk through as Tammie Boykin, REALTOR and listing agent of this home, tells you a little more about it. Cheers!

117 Cedar Ridge Drive ~ Great Video Tour ~ Home For Sale

117 Cedar Ridge Drive in Maysville, NC ~ Great Video Tour on this awesome home for sale 

As a REALTOR in Jacksonville, NC, I get to see A LOT of homes for sale in our area. This is probably one of my favorite things about my job! Over the years I have grown partial to particular neighborhoods, but most of the time I have preferred older subdivisions to newer ones. I love the way an older neighborhood has a "homey" kind of feel when you drive through and see mature trees and established shrubbery. Evan's Crossing, however, has become the exception for me. 

Evan's Crossing is a gated community with a Maysville address, even though it's very close to the Jacksonville, NC line and only 5-10 minutes from the main gate of Camp Lejeune (that's super important for homeowners in our area since a good percentage of our area is made up of Marines and Navy). Rockland Construction, Inc. first developed this neighborhood a few years ago with the vision of creating a gated community with a country-living feel, upper-end homes, and quality construction at affordable prices. There are only about 23-26 lots in the entire neighborhood, and they made it a point to SAVE THE TREES! To this tree-huggin' hippie, that's a big plus in my book! 

I have personally listed and sold several of the homes in Evan's Crossing over the past few years, and there are only a few new homes and lots left. One of the Realtors in my office asked me to come out today to take a video tour of 117 Cedar Ridge Drive, so here it is!

27 Warlick Street Jacksonville, NC - Home For Sale

27 Warlick Street in Jacksonville, NC is currently for sale at $137,500! 

This is a gorgeous 4 bedroom, 2 bath home in downtown Jacksonville, NC

Click the picture below for a video tour of this home:

 27 Warlick St Jacksonville NC Homes For Sale

Twice a month our office goes out on what we call "caravan" to view homes that are listed by our Realtors at Choice Jacksonville Realty. Yesterday I had the pleasure of viewing 27 Warlick Street Jacksonville, NC which is on the market for sale for $137,500. I was really excited to see this home because I just LOVE how great downtown Jacksonville is looking these days! 

I decided to do a little video tour of this home because I really believe it's going to make a great home for someone who only wants a mortgage payment around $875 per month.** My daughter and her fiance will be getting married this December, and as I was walking through 27 Warlick Street, all I could think about was how perfect this home would be for her and Sean as newlyweds. 

My breath was taken away as I pulled up to the home and saw all of the Dogwood trees in bloom in front of the American flag waving in the wind. This home has such a classic look and feel about it, inside and out. The hardwood floors are the original from when the house was built in 1949, however they look amazing! The living room was such a great size, and in the back of the home, there was an additional family/entertainment room. There was a bedroom on the first floor that can be used as a master bedroom OR a guest room with a full bath in the hall. The home was painted in a very nice neutral color, so matching furniture and decor would not be a problem. 

Having kids, one thing I really loved about this home is that it's just a short walk to Wilson Bay Park with a playground and a dock. My husband and I used to put our boat in over there, and it's so pretty that we decided to take Kylee's prom pictures there when she was in high school. 

Wilson Bay Park in Jacksonville, NC

So to sum it up, 27 Warlick Street is really going to make someone a fantastic home and/or investment really soon. I do not foresee this home being on the market in Jacksonville, NC for too long.
