Just Sold in Braemar:  One Car Garage Townhousefor $270,000

This Braemar garage townhouse hit the market on May 29, 2012, priced at $269.000.  It was a well maintained townhouse, but had no frills like granite counters, hardwood floors or upgraded appliances.  The home was pretty basic, but in good shape.  It did, however, have a large deck off of the eat-in kitchen.

The Buyers that chose this home saw it on May 31st and wrote an offer right away.  It’s a good thing they did because as soon as the offer was received by the Seller, we got word that other buyers wanted to make offers.  Because the first Buyers in were serious, they wrote above list price at $274,000 ans asked for $4,000 back in closing cost help.  My Seller accepted.

There was one hitch when the appraisal didn’t come in at sales price.  It came in at $268,000.  However, Buyers and Seller agreed to a sales price of $270,000, and to keep the $4,000 in closing cost help.  That meant the Buyers had to bring an additional $2,000 to the closing table, along with their down payment and other closing costs.

This Braemar townhouse made it to settlement on June 21st, less than thirty days from the date it hit the market.

No One Knows Braemar Better!

Braemar Townhouse Under Contract in Three Days!

Braemar Townhouse Under Contract in Three Days!

This Braemar garage townhouse hit the market on May 29th for $269.000.  The Buyer wrote their offer on May 31st and it was accepted by the Seller on June 1st.

You may be asking yourself, “Why did it go under contract so quickly?  There are several reasons.

First of all, while sporting the basics and no upgrades, the home was clean and showed well.

Secondly, it was priced right. Not too high, turning off buyers and making them wait for something more reasonable to come on the market.

Thirdly, the Seller was smart enough to hire a local agent that specializes in Internet marketing.  That means lots of pictures and lots of online exposure.

Finally, there is a shortage of homes in the Bristow area.  Buyer demand is at a fever pitch right now.  If you follow the first three tenets of real estate you’ll be in good shape. They all work in concert with one another to get your home sold quickly and for top dollar.

If you want to investigate selling your Braemar home, let me know.  I’d be happy to run comps for you and tell you where you stand in today’s marketplace.
