With many home buyers looking for at least two bedrooms, real estate agents are often left to promote one-bedroom properties as either “cozy” or “condo alternatives.” But for many singles and couples, one bedroom will do just fine, especially if there is extra space somewhere else for a studio, office or overnight guest. Sometimes it does not take too much convincing t0 sell these smaller homes. Take for example a one-bedroom, 622 square-foot Echo Park home (pictured) on Alvarado Street that sold last month for $220,000 – nearly $30,000 above the original asking price., according to Redfin.
In most cases, a bedroom is defined as a room with a closet. But many one-bedroom home buyers end up closing off alcove or investing in a sofa bed when when additional sleeping quarters are needed. Click on the link below for some Eastside one-bedrooms home currently on the market.
