Another Braemar Carriage Home SOLD!

Another Braemar Carriage Home SOLD!

If you asked me what the most difficult month to sell a Bristow home would be, I would tell you August.  Congress takes the month off and all the government workers in
our area follow suit on go on vacation.  I once heard a fellow agent describe August perfectly as, “You know the real estate market will be slow when all you see on Facebook is pictures people are posting from the beach.”   It’s true.  9458 Cromarty Court  sold for $395,000 on October 30, 2015.While it might take two weeks in early spring to get under contract, it will take double or triple the time in August.  It’s not impossible to sell in August.  It just takes longer.  And a good Listing Agent doesn’t back down from a listing no matter the time of year.

This Parkdale model home, located at 9458 Cromarty Court, hit the market on August 3rd (2015.)  Its original list price was $415,000.  However, after just one week on the market, the feedback was in.  Buyers were not seeing the value when other Braemar Carriage homes were priced more aggressively.  So my Sellers made the choice to lower the price to $399,000.  They had identified their next home and didn’t want to let it slip away.

After twenty five days on the market,  and two offers, my Sellers went under contract.  Thankfully, they had a buyer willing to give them a two month FR to Kitch--9458 Cromartyclosing time frame.  That gave them time to go out, get under contract on their home of choice and not feel rushed if they couldn’t make a deal with their first choice.

On October 30th, this Braemar Carriage home sold for $395,000.  Sellers Chris Ann Cleland, Braemar Real Estate Agent, 703-402-0037only had to give $750 in closing cost help.
