Welcome Home: A home staged for success
Special to the Daily
What do buyers really want? According to one builder, buyers “want to have everything, but can’t afford it.” But the real answer according to the real estate search engine Home.com is this: a three to four-bedroom, three-bathroom “family oasis.”
Of Home.com’s database of 2,000 home seekers, 455 responded to the question. More than half opted for a house in the country, with three bathrooms and an ideal size of 2,001 to 3,000 square feet of living space. Desired amenities? Walk-in closets, en-suite bathrooms, fireplaces and large garage spaces for all their toy storage. Outdoor must-haves? Decks and patios.
What if you could get a home that was built a few year back with only one owner that took extremely great care of it? What if it had a finish that look like homes being built right now? Look no further, 520 Teller St. in Frisco may be the property you have been waiting for. It is 2,686-square-feet of wow, I gotta have it now. A walk to town location, but away from in town traffic.
This three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath home is very comfortable and well laid out. From the moment you approach the entry, you feel the craftsmanship of 520 Teller.

The well-laid-out kitchen is great for cooking and entertaining since the cook is part of the gathering, not isolated in the back of the home.
