Another Braemar Single Family Home Sold!
On July 20, 2013, I was out with a buyer-client in Braemar. We’d seen just about everything listed in Bristow under $450,000 and were not impressed. Either the lots were undesirable, the communities were less than appealing or the homes were outdated and attempting to take advantage of the seller’s market. No matter how much demand there is, buyers aren’t likely to over pay for a home.
We were leaving a listing on Hopper Lane when we saw a For Sale By Owner sign. Out of curiosity, we called and asked the list price and if we could view it on short notice. The list price was $445,000. And the sellers were happy to let us see the home right then, on three minutes notice.
It was a pipe stem lot. Nice and private. While modest in size, it had been well maintained. New carpet was just installed and the paint looked fairly fresh too. Even the deck had been given some TLC.
The next day, my Buyer made an offer on the home. After a quick back and forth, all parties were in agreement. It was a cash deal and slotted to settle in two weeks. That’s a fast turn around! In the world of Bristow-Gainesville real estate, most deals close within an average of about forty days.
This Stanford model by Ryan, with four bedrooms, two full and two half bathrooms and a partially finished walk out basement, sold on August 5, 2013 for $437,500.
