I live here in North Andover and spend a great deal of time viewing the available inventory.
There are 22 condos in town active at the moment with 3 bedrooms ranging from $147,000 into the high $700's.
Are you interested in a specific development and perhaps you mean there aren't any available within the development ?
The majority of 2 bedroom condos in town are garden style. Depending on your price point the rooms typically would not lend themselves to splitting one into two. Some homeowners have converted two bedroom units at Village Green and Andrew circle into three bedroom units by finishing the lower levels. Perhaps a townhouse with a finishable basement would be an option for you?
Millpond townhomes have varying floorplans and often times two bedroom units have either a finished lower level with sliders or a bonus loft area that many use comfortably as a third bedroom.
I have seen units where people have converted 2 bedrooms into three bedrooms at Meadowview in town and at Village Green.
If you a certain location in mind feel free to let me know which development and I can ask around to see if any are going to be coming on the market.
Best of luck with your search!
Almost every HOA has a rule regarding renovation. Usually, a job over a certain dollar amount needs to have plans signed off by an architect and approved by the HOA, the work has to be done by licensed and bonded contractors, and meet current building code requirements.
All the best,
