16681919_10154626207814440_7704927262991219151_n

The current owner, and soon-to-be-Floridian, has lived in this home since she was in 6th grade, falling in love with its location and layout- she purchased it from her parents! As she spoke about her home, her voice softened

My favorite memory here has to be that I got to raise my family in my childhood home.

There  is just something so special about that- and exudes a true love for the dwelling.

This unique 3 bed Cape in the Darlington section of Pawtucket is teeming with customization from top to bottom. The love that has gone into the home, from the tailor-made kitchen cabinetry to the detailed, but simple, landscaping is welcoming and functional for all.

The corner lot delivers a yard with the perfect setting for children to play, learn and enjoy the warm summers and snowy school days, as well as a deck to relax on and chat with neighbors!

185 Warren Avenue in Cranston is a family and entertainers’ dream home. The last house, situated on a cul-de-sac in a great neighborhood, this home is chock-full of everything you could ask for, from granite to a cabana.

cabana

Yes, a cabana.

First some details:

So what else is 185 Warren Avenue boasting?

This perfectly placed home has 3 bedrooms and 1 full bath. There is a beautiful eat-in kitchen, white and bright with a much sought-after granite counter top. All appliances are included!

The lower level is home to a built-in bar, for entertaining, a laundry room, and, of course, all the mechanicals.  An attached garage, with an opener, of course, highlights the outside! Perfect for storage, a car, the bikes; you name it! The driveway is also spacious and fits, at least, 3 cars.

basement bar

The best part for summer? Central air! …oh, and the pool. A rather sizable, very well maintained pool.

And the outdoor shower.

And the cabana. If you have a party no one is bringing water into the house to change or use the bathroom- they go right in the cabana.

Was that enough “ands”?

And what else?

Though situated nicely off the beaten path, there is quick access to highways… shopping, the commuter bus line, schools- both private an public, recreational activities like tennis and swimming! Just minutes from 95, 295, the Warwick Mall, Route 2. You can get to some outstanding restaurants, the best schools in the area, shopping galore, or even up to the beaches and parks with ease! Perfect for all interests.

But back to the street: NO outside traffic, all neighbors, and the street is more like extended family with friends always around for community.

We’ve got the inside scoop that this neighborhood is VERY kid-friendly!! In fact, the Elementary school for 185 Warren Ave is ranked number 5 in the WHOLE state of Rhode Island.

Current owners Amy and Jeff’s favorite memory, involves their sweet son, Landon:

The day we took Landon home. It was a beautiful summer day. Every one of our neighbors came over and brought us food. They all said ” we don’t want to impose, just wanted to bring you a meal.” Now that is community.

Aliesha Noonan & Associates proudly represent this home and sellers and while we know the neighborhood will be missed, we’re excited for this family to take their next steps on their journey! Give us a call at 401-580-8672 for more information today!

What to expect when selling your home in Rhode Island:

So, you’ve signed your listing agreement, what happens next? Aliesha Noonan & Associates wants to make this whole process easy for you, so here’s the list! (Anything in bold has a definition at the bottom.)

What to expect listing your home in rhode island

 

  • All of your listing paperwork will be copied to you via email (or the most convenient way to deliver them to you).
  • A professional photographer is scheduled, and pictures are taken of your home. This is paid for by us.
  • After the photos are ready, your listing is inputted into MLS.
  • Within 24 hours of listing in MLS, we will place a sign in your yard.
  • Showings begin after that!
  • We will provide feedback after each showing, giving you ideas on how to adjust your home to sell.
  • Presentation of offers- we sit and discuss each offer in depth and decide which offer is most advantageous to you, as well as the option of counter offers.
  • Once the party has agreed, the P&S is drawn up and we fully explain it before…
  • The signing and submission of P&S with deposit from buyer. This deposit is held by Remax Property escrow account until closing, at which time we apply it towards the purchase price.
  • The inspection period commences- the buyer has 10 business days to do any inspections relevant for the house.
  • We are there for all inspection(s)- you will be informed of the date(s) and we will make arrangements for timing with you, including things like picking up radon testing. You are not responsible for buyer inspections!
  • Once buyer’s inspection requests come in (if any), we sit down and discuss them with you. Once we come to an agreement on said requests, an addendum is drawn up and signed.
  • Once the inspection contingencies are completed, the appraisal will be done. We meet the appraiser at the home and provide comps and a copy of the P&S.
  • The buyer’s final mortgage commitment letter is due and a title search is done on your property to be sure there are no outstanding issues on your title. This ensures we’re ready to move towards closing. This is done at the buyer’s expense.
  • Once all of these items are completed, we gather final reads on water, sewer, oil, gas, propane, obtain a smoke certification, provide all information to the closing attorney. The attorney then draws up the final documentation for the closing, and the date of closing is set.
  • The CD is prepared by the lawyer prior to the closing for you to review, all figures and questions can be reviewed with us ahead of time so you are comfortable on closing day.
  • Your final walk-through is scheduled… and then we’re off to the closing table!
  • We are there with you at the closing, and will ensure you have everything with you to have the day go smoothly!

And then you’re there!

This is an amazingly intricate process, much of it handled by us, behind the scenes! There is no specific timeline that can be assigned, because each sale is tailored to our sellers, individually.

We look forward to taking this step with you and welcome all of our clients to the first step of their listing! Contact us at 401-580-8672 today!
