Listing of the Day: Back By Popular Demand

3119 Bailey Avenue, 2 Bedroom, 1 Bath - $218,000

First my apologies for the serious hiatus on the LODs. Teaching, coaching, tutoring, and fathering all devour my time, so I haven't found myself stalking listings as much as I used to during the summer.

In any case, the Daily News thing from Tuesday, which mentioned the LODs, coupled with a few emails from devoted readers and friends, have convinced me it's time to get back on the real estate profiling horse. Mind you, dear readers, that there may less frequent than daily LODs, but make no mistake: my low level internet addiction will be channeled back toward finding and profiling Bronx real estate bargains, price chops, and general listing miscellany.

Today's reentry into the LOD realm, is a 1,000 square foot 2 bedroom co-op in a nice looking building in Kingsbridge/Southern Van Cortlandt Village.

The unit looks well maintained, with nice floors and stainless steel appliances. The listing states that the maintenance is only $624/month, which is very nice for a 2 bedroom.

The area has a bit to offer with the Marble Hill Target and a multitude of other retail options a stone's throw away. It also doesn't hurt that you'd be in walking distance to the best new(ish) bar in the BoogieDown - the Bronx Ale House. Not a bad local, if you ask me. Proximity to Van Cortlandt Park helps as well (you can even pretend to have a deck!).

Transportation is sweet with the 1 train just down the block at 231st. If you needed east side access the 4 train at Kingsbridge Road and Jerome Avenue isn't that far off.

The location has some drawbacks. The building is flanked on the 231 St. side by a church that in good weather holds flea markets on the weekend. One the other side is a business. Bailey Avenue is busy with traffic coming from and going toward the Major Deegan Expressway.
