Silver Firs Townhomes - The Best Value In Everett, Washington
Would you think I'm crazy if I told you that you could find a 12-year old, 1700 square foot, 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home for sale in a nice area for under $200,000? Well, you can... And I'm not crazy. Welcome to Silver Firs Townhomes.
Silver Firs Townhomes is an extension of the Silver Firs Neighborhood in south Everett just off Puget Park Drive. The community is made up of 190 townhomes ranging from around 1300 square feet to over 1700 square feet, built between 1995 and 1998.
Recent short sales and bank owned properties have made Silver Firs Townhomes a bargain hunter's dream. However, strolling through the neighborhood, it probably wouldn't strike you as a distressed property neighborhood. Properties look well maintained, neighbors are friendly, and people hit the sidewalks on sunny days for some extra exercise. These properties are quietly sold to buyers looking for a great deal.
With property prices in Silver Firs Townhomes so affordable, you would probably expect high homeowners association dues, right? Well, not here. For dues of only $100 per month, the Silver Firs Townhomes Homeowners Association does a great job of maintaining common areas, as well as handling exterior tasks such as pressure washing buildings and gutter cleaning.
Approximately a mile from Silver Firs Townhomes is Willis Tucker Park, an 84-acre park with an activity center, amphitheater, baseball fields, basketball court, 4.5 acre off-leash dog area, picnic shelters, playground, water park, and walking trails. During the summer, the park hosts a movie night at the amphitheater each week, and on sunny summer days, the water park and the playground are bustling with children. For those of you with dogs, the off-leash dog area at Willis Tucker Park is the best in the area. There's even a "shy dog" area separated from the main dog park for dogs that are bit more timid.
Just across Puget Park Drive from Silver Firs Townhomes is the newly renovated Mill Creek Family YMCA. With over 39,000 square feet of state-of-the-art facility space and all new equipment, this YMCA branch is one of the nicest in the area.
If you're a first-time buyer, the Silver Firs Townhomes community offers an opportunity to buy a great home with room to stretch out without breaking the bank.
