Another Braemar Carriage Home Under Contract—13790 Tartan Hills Parkway
What time of year a Braemar listing hits the market depends largely on the situation of the seller. Not all sellers experience the circumstances that drive their move to coincide with the spring market. And that’s not a bad thing. A lot of sellers don’t realize that Braemar experiences year round demand.
The Seller of this Maplewood model consulted with me months prior to listing. The prep for the listing, which included having the home repainted from top to bottom, re-carpeting and de-cluttering was done during the slowest real estate month of the year–August. With a fresh new face, this carriage home hit the market priced at $322,500 on September 4th (2014.)
At the time that the home hit the market, the Braemar real estate market had already softened. Buyer demand was not as intense and homes were sitting on the market. The Seller was prepared for a longer marketing period than earlier in the year.
After a lot of showings, but no offers, the Seller lowered the list price to $314,000 on September 23rd. After twenty-six days at the improved list price, the house received an offer and was officially under contract two days later. The total marketing time was forty-seven days.
You will have to wait until December to learn the final sales price. However, if you are one of those sellers that find themselves needing to list in the fall or winter, don’t despair. Buyers are looking in Braemar year round. Contact me for a free market analysis of your specific home’s value. No One Knows Braemar Better!
