Another Braemar Single Family Home Goes Under Contract
On May 5th, I had the pleasure of listing 12146 Millbill Court in Braemar. Pride of ownership was so obvious in this cul-de-sac charmer. All the windows, sliding doors, hardwood floors, carpet, roof, gutters, deck and appliances had been replaced withing the last four years. In that same time frame, the owners had updated the lighting and fixtures in the bathrooms, and added granite counters there and in the kitchen.
Initially, the home was priced at $508,000. After three weeks on the market, the sellers received their first offer, but what the buyers wanted and the seller would accept were not intersecting at all. After that, the sellers and I knew that a price improvement to $499,900 was in order. A month after their first offer, another offer came in. Again, no intersection between buyers and sellers, so there was no deal.
There were a handful of false starts with other buyers who expressed interest and then disappeared. Not every home goes under contract in less than five days, nor should it. In this case, it took sixty-six days for the sellers to encounter a buyer that was willing to terms acceptable to them. It took time and determination from this Listing Agent and the Sellers to prove to the market why this home was worth more than a lot of buyers thought.
This lovely home will close on August 31st, at which time the final sold price will be revealed. Until then, if you want to know what your Braemar home is worth in the current market, give me a call at 703-402-0037. Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!
