Braemar Parkdale Carriage Home Sold in One Day!
On Valentines’ Day 2017 I listed 9758 Tombreck Court, a Parkdale with four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms at the end of a cul-de-sac. The Seller and I had discussed pricing the home and landed on $420,000. It was a tad higher than the recent comparable sales, but since there was a shortage of available houses for sale, we decided to go for it.
To prep the home, the seller had it painted inside and out, new carpet installed and the siding power washed. And because it was vacant, I did a little bit of light staging to warm it up and make it feel homey. It didn’t have a lot of upgrades, but it had three finished levels in good shape, a detached garage and most importantly, that cul-de-sac lot.
The first day on the market, we had four offers. So on February 15th, we reviewed what we had. Two of the offers had home sale contingencies. One of those buyers was under contract, the other hadn’t even put their home on the market. The choice to the Another, without a home sale, really didn’t offer a competitive price. The Seller, who wished to avoid any additional risk with the home sale, chose to go with the fourth offer that didn’t have anything but home inspection, radon inspection, appraisal and financing contingencies. Those four are standard contingencies in our Braemar marketplace.
It was smooth sailing through the inspections and, because I was able to communicate the demand in the neighborhood and provide a list of updates down prior to listing to the appraiser (along with comps of course,) there wasn’t an apprasial issue either.
This four bedroom Parkdale model Carriage home sold for $425,000 on March 15th (2017.)
