Home Sales in the Bowers School District in Manchester CT

The Bowers School District in Manchester CT is one of the sought after areas of affordable homes in Manchester. With its tree-lined and sidewalked streets, the Bowers School District has a quiet neighborhood feel while being close enough to schools, playgrounds, restaurants, and shops.

Bowers School District in Manchester CTThere is a variety of architectural styles in the area, but many are capes and colonials built in the 1940s and 1950s.  Many of the homes in the Bowers School District have been upgraded and showcase the solid construction and beautiful woodwork reminiscent of the era.  Anyone who is lucky enough to find a house in need of updating may find a true bargain and a diamond in the rough.

Ask anyone in Manchester what they think of Princeton Street and they will probably say it is one of the most beautiful streets in Manchester.  The street is wide, with a canopy of trees over it, and the houses are beautifully cared for.  The side streets and the surrounding areas have their own charm as well.

A Different Kind of Open House
Peggy Chirico, REALTOR® 860-748-8900, Hartford & Tolland County Real Estate (Prudential CT Realty)

Sunday is Open House day here in Manchester, CT, but this Sunday is going to be a little different.  Instead of just promoting my own listing, I am going to be part of a GROUP OPEN HOUSE targeting the homes for sale in Manchester in this particular price range.

This idea came up at a recent Brokers Tour and several of us thought it might be worth trying.  We all have houses to sell in the $169,000 to $189,000 range, so we are going to try to generate traffic to all the listings in our group.  We each advertised our own open house independently, but at each location we will post a flyer with the location of the other listings. 

Here is my listing at 220 Middle Turnpike East, Manchester, CT which is on the market for $169,900.  Stop in at the Open House on Sunday, September 12, 2010 from 12:00 to 3:00.

 

 

There are so many great homes for sale, at such reasonable prices, and qualified buyers have a tremendous opportunity right now.  I don't know if this type of open house will be more effective, but I will certainly keep you posted.

If you are in the area, please stop by 220 Middle Turnpike East, Manchester, CT this Sunday from 12:00 to 3:00 p.m.
