Just Sold: Gorgeous Yardley Model in Braemar for $505,000
When I listed 9996 Broadsword Drive for $499,000 on August 29th, I didn’t expect the market to react immediately. It was a Tuesday, coming out of summer and into Labor Day weekend. Definitely not what I expected to be an optimal time to list. This home taught me that when you put a tip top home on the market, priced correctly, the market will grab it regardless as to when it is listed.
We had two showings, resulting in two separate buyers within twenty-four hours. Having the ability to act quickly, the buyer who submitted first truly got one of the best kept homes in the neighborhood.
My sellers had taken every pre-listing note. They painted over their colors and did all neutral. They installed new carpet. And they removed a bunch of furniture to show the house, not their stuff. It worked.
This one settled today for $505,000. The seller was happy to give $5,000 in closing cost help when the buyers upped the price to accommodate that. It was a smooth transaction. And tonight, the best news is that the new home owners are smiling from ear to ear in their new home. I know because I met the new owners when I took off the lockbox tonight. Those smiles, and the fantastic review my sellers left for me on Zillow, made this otherwise horrible day a very good twist.
