Berkeley Duplex for Sale By Owner

I hope it's ok to post this message.  I have co-owned a duplex in 
Berkeley for the past four years with a person I met through CoHousing.  
We realized that, as our CoHousing group discussed possible sites, we had 
no equity to invest and couldn't afford to live in CoHousing yet.  (Our 
group was also having a hard time finding a site.) At any rate we 
purchased a duplex in '90 and had many of the advantages of 
CoHousing--shared ownership, shared planning of common areas, etc.  It 
was a very positive experience but our lives have changed (a marriage, a 
child) and we've decided to sell the property.   

Our duplex is near Shattuck and Ashby in Berkeley.  It's a 2-story brown 
shingle that has been remodeled and upgraded.  There is a beautiful 
garden and 2 decks:  one in the yard and one on the roof.  The units are 
not large (approx 750 sq ft upstairs and 650 downstairs) but it has been 
ideal for co-ownership or for someone who wants to live in one unit and 
rent the other.  

We are selling this on a "By Owner" basis for a relatively short period 
of time.  If we can sell it ourselves, we'll be able to keep it 
affordable.  Sorry--should have told you the price at the beginning-- 
$209,500.  If you'd like to receive a flyer with a sketch and more 
details, please leave an e-mail message for me  hmaxwell [at] or 
call (510) 531-0829.  Thanks.
