How Long Does it Take a Braemar Single Family Home to Go Under Contract?
The amount of time it takes a Braemar single family home to go under contract depends on many factors. Buyer demand in the marketplace for the size of home being sold. Price. Condition. And not to be overlooked, the marketing skills of the Listing Agent.
On Saturday, April 13th (2019,) I brought 10024 Naughton Court to the market. It was priced at $529,000 and offered three fully finished levels, four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, a renovated kitchen, new carpet, paint, upper level laundry and main level study. The owner, who had begun listing conversations with me two years previously, had taken a lot of care in getting her home into show ready condition. The task can be overwhelming, but not if you get started early like she did.
One the final touches were made, I scheduled a pre-picture appointment to make sure that we would not be overlooking any details come picture day. Part of my job as a Top Braemar Listing Agent is to make sure that my listings are professionally photographed and look perfect on picture day. Sometimes that means staging bedrooms, bathrooms or kitchens a few days prior. Or it can be as simple as getting items into place on picture day. Just like your mom used to lick her finger and get a wild hair to stay down on your head before a family portrait was snapped, I’m there to make sure no detail gets overlooked. One such detail before the front shots were snapped at 10024 Naughton Court was moving ten bags of mulch into the garage. They had been delivered between our staging appointment and picture day. Sure my outfit got messy, but the house was literally picture perfect. That’s what matters.
Hitting the market mid-morning on Saturday, I didn’t expect much action, especially since there was an open house scheduled for the next day. However, three buyer agents called to let me know they would be submitting offers after their showings. Two of them submitted offers THAT NIGHT. And both of those offers were over list price. That’s the power of professional marketing by a Top Braemar Listing Agent.
By the time the open house was over, and dozens of buyers desiring to live in Braemar had been through the home, many of them ill prepared to make a serious offer with homes of their own to sell that weren’t even on the market, this Naughton Court beauty was under contract. One day was all it took to check all the boxes, and then some, to make my seller happy.
You’ll have to stay tuned for the details on the final sold price. Closing is set for June 17th. Until then, if you have been thinking of taking advantage of this intense buyer demand happening our market, give me a call. Since 2005, No One Knows Braemar Better!
