Another Braemar Townhouse SOLD!
On March 11th (2015,) I had the pleasure of listing 10153 Pale Rose Loop in Braemar for sale at $299,000. At the listing appointment, a couple weeks previous, I had told the Seller that the home needed a fresh face. The interior paint was worn and dark. The carpets were inconsistent in style and tired.
Fresh paint and new carpet made all the difference in making this rather small garage townhouse in Braemar stand out to buyers. Those new finishes, with the brick front and location backing to woods got this townhouse chosen over larger ones on the market. I was actually surprised that it took a little more than a week to get an offer, but we were still dealing with snow storms at that time. On March 21st, we had two offers in hand and one of the buyers made an offer the Seller couldn’t refuse. They waived their home inspection contingency.
The buyers had a coinciding settlements contingency, which meant the home they had that was currently under contract, had to settle for them to be able to purchase the townhouse. Much preferred to a home sale contingency when a home that a buyer has to sell hasn’t either hit the market, or gone under contract.
The successful settlement happened on April 20th for $300,000. The Seller agreed to a $9,000 closing cost credit to the Buyers.
