This beautiful new home in Owosso could be yours!

img_6108 You’ll find this new home nestled in the north east corner of Owosso in the desirable Osburn Lakes lakes subdivision. Just minutes away from downtown and most schools, this home includes a beautiful kitchen, 3 bedrooms, 2 and a half baths, and fresh paint throughout most of the home. Upstairs is a den/office perfect for working from home or a place for the kids to do their homework. Out back you’ll find a recently stained deck and fenced yard to keep your fur or non-fur babies 🙂 where you can see them.

What does the current owner have to say about living here?

For me, the people are what make it a home. Family is everything to me and I was blessed to have all of my kids live there with me at one point or another since owning the house. What I love about the neighborhood is the convenience to everything you need…grocery, shopping, all the local schools. I like the quietness of the neighborhood and the care that the residents have for their homes shows. I enjoy sitting on my deck and hearing the band practicing at the high school and on Friday nights being able to hear the cheers from the football stadium, but not be impacted by any traffic 🙂 The subdivision is just big enough to get a nice walk in without leaving the subdivision and since its on the edge of town I often see deer and other wildlife out in the fields nearby!

Country Paradise Near City Convenience

781 Holt Rd This 6 acre, 4 bedroom, 2 and a half bath country paradise can be yours for a steal! Nestled off the main drag with gorgeous mature trees all around, the natural light and charming front and back porches are the perfect family retreat. Inside you’ll find beautiful hardwood floors, a cozy fireplace, and updated kitchen with quartz counter-tops. The thing I like best about this home is the setting (quiet, peaceful, and spacious), but don’t take it from me. Here’s what the owners have to say!

We love being surrounded by nature. We often see deer and wild turkeys outside, and we’ve had the pleasure of watching for baby animals each spring. The view from our windows is beautiful year round: brilliant greens in summer, trees blazing with color in the fall, peacefully snowy landscapes in winter, and budding flowers in the spring. Our large windows bring in lots of sunlight during the daytime, and on clear nights we can even see the stars from our bed.

Let’s Talk Poo

Poo? Yes, number 2. You see I’ve been reading up on septic systems for a client interested in buying some unimproved land and thought it best to write up what I’ve learned so we can all benefit.

The first thing to find out when buying land that doesn’t have a sewer hook up, is can I put a septic system in? To determine the answer to that question we would write up the purchase contract contingent on a site evaluation (aka perk test). The site evaluation runs about $300-$800 and would tell you if you can install a conventional system or if an alternative system (aka: engineered or mounded system) would be necessary. It will also tell you where you can have the system installed.

Should a conventional system be sufficient you will be looking at about $3,000-$15,000 for the installation. Also, the installation will be completely below ground. Figure on inspections every three years at a cost of about $200-$600 and periodic pumping of the tank at $200-$400.

On the other hand, if the ground water or bedrock are too high you will likely need to have an engineered (aka: mounded) system installed. Here you’re looking at $15,000 to $30,000 for installation and the system will cause a bulge or “mound” in the land. In addition, there is more maintenance and upkeep with a mounded system so make sure to factor in another $500-$1000/year for that.

As you can see the costs fluctuate widely and that’s a great reason to get multiple quotes. Just make sure when you make your selection that you don’t just pick the cheapest option or you may find yourself in deep do-do (quite literally).
