Check This One Out For Only $135!!

vallejoCheck out this good looking and updated home that just hit the market in Forest Acres. 1,000 or so square feet, and move in ready for only $135,000!

151 Vallejo Circle is about the best location you can get for the money. Here are a few reasons why: 1) Minutes to anything Forest Drive, including all things Trenholm Plaza. Also minutes to anything downtown. 2) Price point. You can purchase a brick home with a big yard for less than you can rent in Downtown, Columbia. 3) And this is where we drop the microphone – Satchel Ford Elementary School.

I lived in 1919 Atascadero just around the corner from Vallejo with my brother and some friends for some years, and even my late wife Kinsey for almost a year (and my buddy Trav lived on our couch for a few months). All of us  completely loved it! The Other Store and Trenholm Park (great tennis courts) one way, Trenholm Plaza (Starbucks/Fresh Market) the other, and Morganelli’s the other, and only minutes to I-77 or anything Downtown Columbia.

Give us a shout if you would like to see or know more about 151 Vallejo Circle. We’re never more than a few miles away and this house is a pleasure to show. Phone 803-447-8683 and email for the moment is franklin.company@gmail.com .

Thank you!
