Yet Another Braemar Garage Townhouse SOLD!
When the Sellers of this Braemar garage townhouse at 9704 Kennoway Court called me to list their home, I was thrilled. I am always excited to sell homes in my neighborhood. The Sellers signed a listing agreement with me months before they listed. Their time frame to sell lined up with two of the slower months of the year, July and August when folks are in summer vacation mode. No matter the time of year, I can get the home sold.
What can make or break a listing is whether sellers take your listing preparation notes seriously. In this case, the townhouse had some darker colors making some areas feel small and older, and the carpet was showing its age. New carpet and paint were my recommendations, and when done gave the home a fresh new look. Since the Sellers did their part, I did mine. I brought in light staging items to make the now vacant townhouse more homey. Did it work? You bet.
The townhouse hit the market on July 12th (2015) priced at $315,000. That was $5,000 than we had planned on two months earlier. Comparable sales showed increasing townhouse values in the span of just two months, so we adjusted the list price up just before going active. The very next day, the home was under contract. The rest was a whirlwind. The settlement was August 5th. The home sold for full list price of $315,000. And the Sellers helped with a portion of the Buyer’s closing costs.
