Braemar Condo Sold in Record Time and Above List Price
In March 2009, I had the pleasure of closing 10024 Lord Lovat Way, a two bedroom, one bathroom, townhouse-style condo in Braemar as a Short Sale. I was the Listing Agent at the time and represented the Seller. The home sold for $154,000, but had been listed for $156,000. The Buyer had her own agent.
Imagine my delight when that Buyer, now wanting to sell, called on me to list the condo. Why not the agent that represented her in the purchase? Her logic was that I had already sold the property once, so I knew it. She’d also been following me in the Bagpiper and on the Braemar Residents Facebook group and knew that I was definitely the neighborhood expert.
We listed the home on June 12th (2013) for $235,000. Within a matter of days, we had two offers. The Seller picked one and we were officially under contract on June 18th. There were no bumps in the road with home inspection, termite inspection or appraisal. Of course, the home was in outstanding condition with new carpet, fresh paint and an updated kitchen that included stainless steel appliances and Pergo flooring.
On July 17th (2013) this Braemar condo sold for $241,000. That’s $6,000 above list price. The Buyers were able to get $3,000 of their closing costs paid by the Seller, still netting the Seller $3,000 above list price.
