Another Home Just Listed & Already Under Contract in Bramear
People who view the real estate industry from the outside often seem to want to console me this time of year. “With the holidays it’s got to be a hard time of year.” You know, that kind of attitude. I’m here to tell you, November and December are busier most years than July and August.
Not only did I put two deals together in Manassas the week of Thanksgiving, but after the Thanksgiving holiday, on November 29th I listed this Braemar Yardley. The home had three finished levels, a walk out basement, fenced yard, five bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms. It boasted built-in book cases in the family room and hardwood floors on the main level. However, as a Short Sale in need of a painting makeover and light fixtures, and maybe some TLC in other places, the Seller and I came upon $399,000 as a fair price for the home. Knowing the average marketing time for a Heritage Series home in Braemar, in the most recent Braemar Property Value Report, was forty days, we settled in for a wait.
By December 5th, this Yardley had an offer. Well, that was unexpected…and completely welcome. On December 7th, this Yardley at 14045 Rora Moss Place was under contract.
Best expectation as to when this might make it to settlement would be April. The sale will be posted here on SellingBraemar.com when it happens, so stay tuned. In the meantime, enjoy your holiday and when you are ready to move, give me a call for a free market analysis of your specific home’s value. No One Knows Braemar Better!
