Want to know the dirty little secret we know about buyers? They are shallow, they can not see past the orange shag carpet and gold harvest appliances to build their own equity. Instead they pay more money for decor, paint colors and freshly finished floors. Don't fall for it! Build instant equity in this lovely Melrose locale. Visit this Gambrel Cape and let us help you visualize the transformation - our idea board is complete with contractor estimates. Take advantage of all Melrose has to offer: from the walkable downtown with shops and restaurants to the myriad public parks & golf and on to the cultural activities, plus nature trails for afternoon hikes and easy access to 3 commuter line stops, Oak Grove and major highways enabling you to spend more time enjoying your home and less time getting to it. The expansive yard adjoins conservation, so let the leafy views be your backdrop. This is truly that diamond in the rough!
