Just Sold: Four Bedroom Canterbury for $541,000
On January 15th (2016,) I had the pleasure of listing 9572 Laurencekirk Place in Braemar. The home had been previously listed for eighty-one days with no offers. We kept the last list price of the former listing of $549.900.
Before the listing ever hit the market, as often happens with my Braemar listings, I received a call from a local Buyer’s Agent who had a client looking for a large single family in the neighborhood. She knew I carried a lot of inventory in the neighborhood and was pleased when I told her about this one. Though showing did result in an offer, it wasn’t an offer that made the Sellers want to skip marketing the home.
After only twenty days on the market with me, this home had two more offers, competing to win the home. A deal was struck with one of the buyers on February 3rd. On April 7th, it closed for $541,000. That final sales price was higher than either buyer had been willing to offer in initially in that competitive situation. The market had spoken loud and clear that $549,900 was just too high for the home. So the sellers made a counter offer and struck a deal while they could. The timing was perfect for them to pick up their dream home, which was still on the market.
