Just Sold: Braemar Five Bedroom Home On Wooded Lot for $580,000
On March 18th (2016) I had the privilege of listing this Wynterhall floor plan by NV Homes, located at 9713 Lennice Way. We hit the market at $580,000.
One of the great things about being known as a Braemar Real Estate Agent is that local agents will call me to see what I have coming up when they have a buyer looking for something in the neighborhood. That was the case with this home. Before it ever came on the market, we had a showing by buyers looking for a larger, four bedroom home in Braemar on a wooded lot. After the sneak peek, they wrote an offer, but it wasn’t strong enough to make my Seller forego the open market and see what else it would bring him. Of course, the reason the offer may not have been so strong an offer was the home wasn’t quite show ready, but it sure was when it listed.
What happened next is that after only two days on the market, he had a full price offer from a Buyer that had to have the home. Unfortunately, during the home inspection those buyers decided this wasn’t the home for them, even when the Seller said he would fix the issues found. And despite those first buyers voiding their contract, the Seller fixed the defects uncovered by that first home inspection.
During the time repairs were being made, we took the home temporarily off the market. And with nothing left to lose, I went back to the very first Buyer’s Agent who had brought the sneak peek Buyers. Were they feeling enough regret to make a better offer? The answer was yes. There were other great homes on the market, but none on a lot this secluded. They wrote an offer nearly identical to the first contract and my Seller accepted. And this second home inspection, thanks to the repairs done as a result of the first, was uneventful. A couple minor cosmetic repairs were made and the parties went to settlement.
When you are ready to sell your Braemar home, give me a call. I’ll put my neighborhood knowledge, marketing expertise and problem solving skills to work for you. No One Knows Braemar Better!
